A truly magnificent building located on the banks of the river Clyde. Impressive gothic design. Lovely details. Couldn't go inside because it was closed and opens at particular hours. Thought I'd be able to return later but didn't. I'm sure the inside must be amazing!

As I was visiting the city I thought I would drop by St Andrew's Cathedral as I had not visited before. Wonderful place to visit - peaceful and scerene and beautifuuly decorated.

My wife and I arrived at Glasgow International at 2:45 PM on a recent October (2016) Sunday. I was hoping we would be able to attend the 5:15 mass, which we did. This was our second trip to Glasgow together, our first being in 2010 while attending the World Championships of Irish Dance at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. My... More

I have walked past here often not even realising what was behind the walls. So glad we looked in. Stayed for much longer than planned. Peaceful, poignant, comforting. Congratulations to the Church team.

St. Andrew's is just around the corner from the Holiday Inn, Stockwell Street. A remarkable job has been done cleaning this Cathedral and it's worth a visit even if it's just to see the stained glass windows.

Just popped our heads in for a few minutes on our way past---so very different in comparison to the old Cathedral across town. The bright white interior is such a contrast to the dark walls and ceilings at the Glasgow Cathedral....love the Gothic design and the Holy Doors were a special treat.
