  • Absolutely beautiful cathedral, everywhere you look is stunning and has so much history. St. Mungo is supposedly buried below.

  • Loved it... Went with a friend for a different day trip. Its a beautiful peaceful space and the architecture is out of this world. The plaques in memoriam and windows are just stunning. If you can find a nice quiet space just to enjoy the vaulted ceilings.
  • I won’t say much about it, nearly 800 years of history? Pilgrimage site? If you were an UofG student, you must come here. Also, the necropolis nearby is an exciting place to visit. To add, I had the pleasure of listening to a concert in the church recently. It has excellent interior lighting and acoustics.
  • Beautiful, colorful, helpful staff. I amazed how beautiful it was and the windows. While my visit, there was a online booking system that I should have book a slot then visit. But I was super fast and just took 2 min to book a slot. If you get cross, definitely visit
  • Beautiful building regardless of your faith; Glasgow Cathedral presents an invaluable insight into the city's history and is well worth a visit. The Gothic architecture is even more stunning in person, and there are a number of artifacts and historic areas of the building that are accompanied by descriptions.
  • No words incredible. Breathing history and magic. Take your time walk and look, let all sink in. We where lucky to hear an organ music. Could just walk in without reservations this time. More chapels (downstairs) where open for visitors.
