Cared for by Historic Scotland and open to visitors throughout the year from 9.30am except Sundays when it is open at 1pm. Recitals and special family events are a regular feature. Closing times vary seasonally.

This cathedral is the definition of a gothic church. It has an impressive volume, it's dark, it's plain. And it has beautiful stained glasses. Also, it has an interesting history. A must visit!

We hopped off the hop-on, hop-off bus at Glasgow Cathedral. It was a very nice, large gothic church. There seemed to be a wedding going on, so we didn't see the whole church, nor did we learn much about it's history. So, you probably get...More

An interesting cathedral, especially underground, with some very nice architecture. An orchestra and choir were rehearsing for an evening performance when we were there - an added bonus.

Besides the crypts in the basement where services are held, this is another classic cathedral that is breathtaking to look at. Gothic architecture throughout the building, and fun areas that housed the filming of Outlander!

A 15 minute walk from George Square Glasgow Cathedral is a beautiful place to visit. Beautiful inside and the whole Cathedral Quarter is lovely. It's not huge just impressive.
