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.

Impressive twelfth century wonder with soaring vaulted arches. Inside, there are people who can tell you more about the cathedral, no fee necessary. This is still a place of active worship, so I would avoid during services, of course.

I checked the website prior to walking here and it said the cathedral was open until 5:30. I arrived at 5 and was told I could not go in because it was closed. Someone needs to update the website.

Only a twenty minute walk from George Square and you find this gem of a cathedral. The stained glass is amazing. We went on Saturday and there were plenty of guides around to offer help and explanations. Well worth a visit.

This Cathedral was very beautiful with plenty of lovely sights. As someone who admittedly isn't very interested in Cathedrals this one was nice to walk round and take photos of. I loved the glass paintings in particular, everything in the building was very photographic. Free...More

It seems strange that a city that prospered on shipbuilding and heavy industry should have a 900 year old cathedral right on the edge of the inner core. St Mungo's dark red sandstone gothic could use a scrub up inside and out, but the sooty...More

There was much to admire on several levels with St Mungo's well and tomb at the bottom- beautiful stain glass- very atmospheric!

I initially ducked into the Glasgow Cathedral on my way to the Necropolis because it was raining... and I'm glad I did. The interior is spacious and very beautiful. The staff there were very helpful, and you can rent a guide for a low price....More

It always amazes me how these are designed and built, if you like this type of site-seeing then give it ago, it's not far from the center, just a 20 minute walk.

We visited the Glasgow Cathedral August 2017. I did not know that you can request tours at the desk. Be sure you do this. We only had a about a half an hour with the tour guide because we found this out toward the end...More
