The medieval Glasgow Cathedral has been in constant use for worship for over 800 years, and is of great architectural and historic interest. Highlights include one of the finest post-war collections of stained glass windows in Britain, and the ceiling in the Blackadder Aisle which was built around 1500 by Archbishop Blackadder. 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.

Beautiful Stain Glass windows with plenty of chapels to stop and stare and take a moment for quiet prayer.

Somehow or another, I guess I never realized St. Mungo was a real person. Harry Potter fan that I am, I figured JK had just made it up. Not true. This is the cathedral that St. Mungo built and it's worth a few hours of...More

Lived in Glasgow for a number of years and never visited until now. Bit of a well kept secret. Unfortunately there was a wedding on so didn't see it all, but really nice place.

Great building full of history , lots to see inside the cathedral we thoroughly enjoyed our tour , it's very easy to get too from the city center a 57 bus takes you there . It's behind the Royal Infirmary Hospital.

A remarkable building inside and out will take your breath away. I spent the whole time sitting looking up at the ceiling. Such a peaceful quiet place. I will go back as there is so much to take in.

St Kentigern's or St Mungo's Cathedral, is a must see. Large and imposing with its elevated position. Combine with vist to the Necropolis next door.

If one is interested in Gothic architecture and history then Glasgow Cathedral is a must see, providing stairs are not an issue.

Historic and lovely landmark. The architecture is unique and gothic. The gift store is extremely cute. I picked up several Celtic themed gifts here. Stop by and spend an hour or so.

Loved our visit here, lots of different, interesting areas to explore, each one a gem. Access might be difficult for some people as lots of stairs.
