The cathedral was NOT open! We got to the back side of it, but the road leading to it, was a private road with a gate! Don’t waste your time trying to see it!

Really nice interior, much more cavernous than I expected. Your typical Victorian and older funeral monuments on the walls but a nice touch is the underground crypt with the covered tomb of St Mungo. There are placards around the crypt detailing the cathedral’s history but...More

Glasgow Cathedral is a must for visitors to the city or for locals. There are guided tours by dedicated volunteers to get the most from your visit. You can feel the history and see the evidence of it for yourself.

If you are in Glasgow, you need to see this place. Its free so you don’t need to pay. Its small cathedral but its beautiful. The coloured windows are so breathtaking and architecture too.

My first impression on entering this Gothic Cathedral is the feeling of space as it allows one to appreciate the wonderful stained glass windows, old and new.; I especially like the Millennium Window. Unfortunately the Blackadder aisle was closed when we visited but we were...More

Gothic cathedral with lots of history. Was originally white but soothed black through the ages. Really liked this cathedral and if in the area, stop by. It's free and worth a visit.

I was impressed that this cathedral was free entry. There is opportunity to donate, and it's worth dropping in a few £. It's a stunning building with a lot of history inside. This became a must see while in Glasgow for me.

A short walk from the city center. Large cathedral, spires visible as you approach. Entrance is through a side portal. Large space, typical gothic, with a cold feel. Beautiful stained glass windows. Very atmospheric. The necropolis nearby is on a hill and offers great views...More

One of the many sad examples of religious vandalism and fanaticism in Scotland. Empty, gloomy interior with very few things to see.

Great medieval Gothic architecture. Definitely the best church in Glasgow and definitely worth a visit. I visited the cathedral multiple times both for sightseeing and for prayer.
