The medieval Glasgow Cathedral has been in constant use for worship for over 800 years, and is of great architectural and historic interest.

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.

A beautiful peaceful Cathedral. Despite being relatively small compared to others this should not put you off. Stunning stained glass widows and a number of small chaples make this a great place to visit for an hour so.

We visited with a ten year old and found it possible to spend an hour looking round this beautiful cathedral and its various chapels. There are tombs and historical flags and windows to see. Worth a visit!

This cathedral has some of the most incredible stained glass that I've ever seen! Such detail, with shading on the individual pains. Worth going to see just for that.
