Burrell Collection

Pollok Country Park 2060 Pollokshaws Road Glasgow G43 1AT

One of the most impressive legacies of Glasgow’s once mighty shipbuilding industry is the outstanding Burrell Collection, an art gallery and museum of global renown. Situated in Pollok Park, ten miles south of the city centre, the city opened this purpose-built gallery in 1983 to house shipping magnate William's Burrell’s lifetime collection of treasures, and it shows them off at their best, with a host of paintings on the upper floors and sculpture and antiques at ground level. It’s an eclectic collection, whose highlights include artefacts from ancient Egypt and China and Impressionist masterpieces by the likes of Degas and Cézanne. A neat touch are the original Romanesque arches built into the structure of this modern building.
