One of the highlights of our trip was visiting The Glasgow Cathedral. An impressive piece of architecture with beautiful grounds. I would go back to visit this place again.

Large and looming over the city. Worth a visit! We arrived right before a service, so the organ was a real treat as it echoed through the cathedral.

Magnificent old church. St Mungo's Kirk. Check out the lamp posts in the driveway, depicting Glasgow's motto.

A sacred, beautiful experience. The stained glass, viewed from the inside, is stunning. Viewed from the cobblestone way or the Necropolis above, the Cathedral is one of the highlights of Glasgow.

The patron saint of Glasgow is buried here. Try to visit the museum of religious life across too. Come in before 4 pm if you want to go down to the tomb of Saint Mungo for a visit.
