Lovely architecture, big and great place. Lot of beatiful details. Lot of tourists of course so a bit hard to take good phographs of the interior.

The Cathedral is a beautiful sacred space that you can just feel the history of when you walk inside. Afford yourself the time to do the guided tour--the docents are lovely and give such wonderful insights into the Cathedral's history and its roles in Glasgow.

Enjoy a stroll past the downtown core and head over to the Cathedral and take a few minutes to go down to the tomb, its fascinating to see the number of people and their headstones inside the cathedral as well as the amazing stained glass.

Well worth the walk out from the Centre (15mins); lots to see and learn from the guide sheet and the notice boards situated around the cathedral. The crypt is fantastic and like a whole new world beneath the church

A morning walk to this Gothic Cathedral and very well worth the experience. A great deal of history from the past was available to be absorbed.

A gorgeous building, which is nice to walk around. There is a little shop as one enters, which sells a nice array of Scottish-themed gifts.
