Hotels near the Burrell Collection
The Burrell Collection is the former private collection of Glasgow shipping tycoon Sir William Burrell. Housed in tranquil Pollok Park, it contains 9000 precious objets d'art, from Degas watercolours to Islamic art and Epstein sculptures.
More than 600 pieces from Burrell's precious stained-glass collection have been worked into the exhibition building, which has one wall made entirely from glass to allow visitors to gaze at the thick woods beyond.
Paintings by Degas and Cezanne and a Rodin sculpture rub shoulders with Chinese ceramics, Japanese prints and Anatolian rugs, medieval needlework, tapestries and silverwork.
