Burrell Collection

The Burrell Collection is a world-renowned collection of art housed in Pollok Country Park in Glasgow's south side. This eclectic collection was the life's work of Sir William Burrell, a local shipping magnate and avid collector of art. He bequeathed his entire collection to the City of Glasgow with the stipulation that the collection be housed some 26 kilometres from the city centre in a location that showed off the works to their best advantage - and to protect them from damage from pollution from the city centre. Twenty years would pass before a suitable location, Pollok Estate, was acquired. In the end the terms of the deed were waived and so the collection is housed within the city of Glasgow, just 5 kilometres from the city centre.

For art enthusiasts visiting Glasgow and its many notable cultural attractions, staying at the Sandyford Lodge is an ideal choice. Our comfortable 19-room hotel was recently refurbished to high standards throughout - all rooms enjoy private bathroom facilities, complementary tea and coffee, flat-screen televisions with a choice of 90 digital TV and radio stations and free Wi-Fi access. Our very affordable accommodation prices are inclusive of breakfast and guests can choose between continental fare and a cooked Scottish breakfast.

The Sandyford Lodge is located on Royal Crescent, between the City Centre and the West End. It is a fifteen minute drive from Pollok Country Park, which can also be reached by train from Glasgow Central. It is the perfect place for a family day out in a delightful woodland setting. The artworks on display include work by artists such as Rodin and Cézanne, alongside Chinese and Islamic art, objects from Ancient Civilizations, Gothic art and mediaeval stained glass pieces. There are special events programmed for families and a year-round selection of events, conferences, storytelling and themed tours for everyone.
