What's so special about Glasgow Cathedral? This has been a site of Christian worship since 553AD. It is a superb example of Scottish Gothic architecture. It was built between late 12th century and 15th centuries. It is the only mainland cathedral which survived the Reformation...More

The Scottish Cathedral (800 years old) and parts of Glasgow University. This is an amazing medieval building built during the 13th-15th centuries. Stained glass windows and the ceiling are especially beautiful.

I wish we'd taken one of the tours to learn more about this cathedral. We didn't know anything about it before going in. I didn't expect it to have the long life it's had. The architecture, both the large- and small-scale aspects, is beautiful. Well...More

Great history and lots to do round that area. Oldest house in Glasgow across road and various other buildings to visit. Lots of history in the Necropolis walking through large graveyard behind cathedral.

The Glasgow Cathedral has an interesting history and worth taking a guided tour so as not to miss the detailed history some of which has been crafted by the stonemasons.

Its a bit sparse inside but beautiful architecture. Love going to the Christmas Carol Service on 24 December. Guides are helpful and cheery. Not overly gaudy or decorated but lovely none the less

Really old and impressive. Huge space with lots of history. We had a special treat as the organist was playing the entire time we were there. Make sure you go down to the lowest level and explore down there too.

A nice place to visit for an hour or so and as the Cathedral is located next to a few other famous attractions, a visitor could spend a few hours taking in these places, such as The Lord Provand's House, The Necropolis and St Mungo's,...More
