Stunning cathedral building in Glasgow's vibrant West End. Large-scale murals by artist Gwyneth Leech. Open, inclusive, welcoming congregation drawn from all over the world.

You can do a tour of this Victorian Cathedral, a bit uninspired from the outside but eye-catching within. Unfortunately we did not have time for this, but we enjoyed Sunday eucharist . We are Church of England and the service was a bit different. We...More

Heard the wonderful Merchant Voices choir sing there last night and was taken by the beauty of st Mary's and how colourful it is. Wonderful painted ceiling and surrounds. Uplifting.

St Mary's Cathedral is far less well known then St Giles is but it's much bigger and just as interesting. It's a little out of the way, but that just makes it quieter. It's a lot bigger then St Giles as well, so photo's look...More

What a lovely service. Very inclusive and friendly, we felt uplifted and happy and our two small children enjoyed the service as well - that's a hard act to follow!

A beautiful cathedral church that celebrates Mass with outstanding music. Honestly, I'd say that you really can't die until you've heard the choir of St Mary's sing!

A beautiful Cathedral and an important part of Glasgow's west end. The most welcoming church I have attended. Well worth visiting for a service and the very high standard of music from the organists and choir, or simply for a wander inside.
