“Hidden gem”

Govan Old Parish Church
Reviewed 30 March 2017

The church is quite hidden, but not hard to find. However, you can walk past it and never notice. Anyway, the church itself really spacious and cozy. And it also has a collection of archeological stones. The church is near the subway station, so you don't need to walk hours to see it.

Home of the legendary hogbacks - a couple of which were borrowed by the British Museum in London for a recent exhibition. Stunning stained glass, rich in history. Tour guides are vounteers who have a wealth of knowledge- brilliant visit!

Well worth a visit the church is really quite nice but the stone carvings are the really good part. The statues are really amazing and you could easily miss this place. Also worth watching the time team episode about the stones.

This is a beautiful old church situated in Govan on the south side of the Clyde. It has featured in Time Team and the Hog Back stones found in the church ground can be seen inside the church.

Visited last year when the Govan stones were on show. Such an amazing find. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and the stones breathtaking. The church itself now houses two denominations which was interesting and the marble scarsophogous another key point.
