The cathedral is where Glasgow was originally formed and lots of this building dates back to 11th & 12 centuries. Its free to enter and wheelchair accessible to main level. The chapels under main level are really interesting and don't miss St Mungo's crypt

Beautifully kept cathedral with interesting nooks and basement chapels. Near the Necropolis which is also worth a visit.

I did not venture inside the Cathedral, but walked around its exterior and was amazed at its dark beauty and scale. A great place to sit and ponder, and adjacent to the Necropolis which is also amazing.

With limited site seeing time in Glasgow chose to visit the Glasgow Cathedral. Beautiful old church and there is no charge to visit.

History just exudes here! Don't miss the downstairs.. The volunteers were terrific and I learned so much history of the area. The stained glass was exquisite and a trip to Glasgow would not be complete without a visit here.

The Cathedral is huge, and really nice. It’s location is delightful as if you choose to walk through the gates and up the hill just behind the Cathedral then you get a wonderful view. As expected there are stain glass windows, but personally I have...More
