Nice place when you're interested in religious history of Scotland. Necropolis next to the cathedral is worth visiting.

Visited on a rainy day but the colours of the stained glass brightened our day. Lots to see and the tomb of St Mungo.

Enjoyed out time at Glasgow Cathedral. Just a beautiful place to visit while in Glasgow. In fact, this was are favorite stop during our time here. We spent an hour plus, just browsing and taking in all of the history.
