The medieval Glasgow Cathedral has been in constant use for worship for over 800 years, and is of great architectural and historic interest.

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 became one of the unexpected highlights of our visit to Glasgow, due in no small part to David - one of the cathedral staff. The cathedral has some beautiful stained glass and an interesting choir but the Lower Church with the tomb of St...More

Stunning. Walked around for ages and loved the architecture, beautifully preserved, warm and welcoming. Thoroughly recommended. Visit the cemetery after though!!

A beautiful, majestic cathedral which is well worth a visit when in Glasgow. We were lucky enough to be given an ad-hoc tour and history lesson by David, as the Cathedral was closing and we were there to research an ancestor. We viewed the ancient...More

This was a very enjoyable experience for my friend and myself. The cathedral is large and beautiful both on the inside and the outside. There is the necropolis right outside which one can visit and St. Mungo Museum (15 second walk outside the door) right...More

Lovely cathedral with quite a history. We were able to spend an hour, or so, touring its many facets and learn of the history of St. Mungo.

Even if you aren't hugely into religion or history - this place is worth a visit just for the incredible architecture and attention to detail. The Cathedral seems like an obvious place to visit when in Glasgow, and I definitely recommend it. Entry is free,...More

The place where you can see the tomb of the city's founder. An amazing gotique building, worth seeing. Remember to take off your cap/hat since it is a religious place. The beautiful view of the cathedral can be seen from the Necropolis. You can enjoy...More

Free entrance. Should you find yourself in Cathedral Square, you should go but don't go out of your way. Recommended time says 1-2 hours but it really only takes 20 minutes to see it. A must for gothic style enthusiasts.
