We visited Glasgow in October and enjoyed our tour of the cathedral. It was free to enter, however we were slightly disappointed that there was an art display in the Cathedral which took away some of the atmosphere of age and history.

Very interesting as I find most cathedrals to be. A lot of history and story soaked into the stone. Tours and guides available.

This has been a site of worship for over 800 years. Survived medieval times and the Reformation. What a beautiful work of architecture! Adjacent to The Necropolis.
