A bit of a walk uphill from St George's Square, the got hic cathedral is worth a visit. The stained glass is beautiful. Look out for the ladybird chair.

A lovely cathedral dating back to the founding of Glasgow and St. Mugo. The building has survived so much also includes some military memorials and lovely stained glass.

We visited this after a long day on the hop on hop off bus. Despite being worn out and low energy we really enjoyed our visit to the cathedral. The inside is truly stunning with a lot of great items of historical significance.

Well worth a visit to this historic building. If you can take the guided tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. Can be reached easily by foot from Glasgow City Centre. Only 10 - 15 minutes walk from Glasgow Buchannan Street Bus Station.
