With both of us working full time we've been finding it quite difficult to plan day trips and with so many chores and boring formalities to fit in over our weekend we don't get much time to escape either. So this week we worked in a quick wander round Maxwell Park while checking out a potential wedding venue next door.
The park is a small one but with lots of nice little features including a lovely avenue through the middle which even in winter gives a pretty view and pleasant walk.

Even without the wedding finery the rooms in the Hall are full of lovely touches such as colourful stained glass windows, elaborate wooden paneling and fancy wooden fireplaces so certainly worth a look if you get a chance.
So if you happen to find yourself on this side of the city we'd recommend popping in to the Pollockshields Burgh Hall or having a little wander around the surrounding park. Maybe just aim for a less soggy day.
