Nice to visit - a very beautiful cathedral. During mass hours parts of the cathedral is (understandably) closed but it is still worth a visit just to listen to the chorus singing.

Largely as built with the exception of the two towers which were removed during the Victorian period sadly. Fascinating place inside with a lot of interesting things to see. The crypt is a must see. I liked it because put had not been too knocked...More

It's an impressive cathedral with beautiful glass windows yet without the blingbling you sometimes see in Italian cathedrals. The volunteer guides are more than willing to give you information. Don't forget a donation!

My first thought was that the cathedral is big and impressive! Everything from the walls to the windows are beautiful. I think it is worth a visit!

Beautiful architecture and well worth a visit (especially for those that haven’t seen cathedrals in other parts of Europe). Be sure to walk through the Necropolis as well.

The cathedral was lovely. You must go underground to see the original burialplace of St. Mungo then make sure to visit the Necropolis in the area.

Decided to walk to the cathedral from the merchant square in Glasgow and was not disappointed. Beautiful setting next to the university. It is up hill. The cathedral is open to the public and well worth the walk through and the cemetery behind it.

A very interesting, historic site! You are able to see almost every room. Don't forget to visit the second "church" downstairs...

Beautiful architecture, and just the fact that this beautiful structure has survived is amazing. The stained glass is wonderful...plan on spending a lot of wandering time, both inside and outside in the cemetery
