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.

The cathedral itself is a stunning building both inside and out. The volunteers/staff inside were exceptionally helpful, one going to a lot of effort when I asked a question to find the answer for me. Worth a visit to absorb the beauty and history of...More

Free to go in, and I purchased an info sheet for 20p. The ceiling is amazing, as is the stained glass. The staff were very informative and answered all of my questions.

It had been 15 or 16 years since I was last in Glasgow & had forgotten how wonderful the cathedral is. St Mungo's story is intriguing, and the cathedral itself has a dark, sombre fee, to it. Spend some time in the crypt below where...More

A bit away from the centre you find Glasgow's oldest parts with the cathedral as centerpiece. A very dark cathedral with beautiful glasswork, archways and a place of quiet and peace.

A lovely cathedral. Preferred this more than St. Giles Cathedral. The architecture, layout, statues, carving are simply wonderful and artistic. There is also the basement to explore more.

I went to the Glasgow Cathedral and was impressed with the visit and explored most of it. A very worthwhile visit as the area itself is very well laid out. A spiritual feeling as I went around. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Most old cathedrals were destroyed during the Reformation. This one survived and has served as a location to shoot scenes from Outlander. Worth a visit.
