Owner description: 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.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Our tour group had the opportunity to visit Glasgow Cathedral as well as the Necropolis. Both were fascinating and were wonderful sources of information about life hundreds of years ago. Despite an occasional drizzle we walked way up above the city to view the statuary erected in memory of those who came before. What I found amazing were the number of headstones which showed that some people way back in the 1800s lived well into their 70s and 80s. I guess the Scots are indeed a hearty group. Make sure to plan on more than an hour or so as there is much to learn about the various cultures in the St. Mungo's Museum which is there too.

Beautiful and a definite must see. Can walk to the grave area on the hill, but the cathedral is beautiful. The grave area of St. Mungo can be seen.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The whole area around the Cathedral was very interesting. There is no charge to visit this lovely church and it felt like a place of worship rather than a tourist attraction like some other Cathedrals I could mention.
