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.

This is the only medieval cathedral in Scotland to survive largely intact. Much of the stained glass was removed in the mid-20th century, but the stonework vaulting is still magnificent.

A must visit place if you are staying in Glasgow for a few days. Old and interesting and very well looked after, with plenty of guides to help with any questions.

Don't miss and take your time. If you go on the first day of your stay you appreciate a lot more details of the city. It is very important to let one of the guides tell you the story of St Mungo.

It's a nice Cathedral. Not too fancy, but you feel it's old and used to be important for the city. Free entrance, so check it out when in Glasgow downtown.

Possibly oldest cathedral in the United Kingdom. Unfortunately due to the reformation all the statues and paintings were removed. Still very old and Majestic. No entry fee. And as usual supported heavily by the souvenir shop in the church.
