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

Grand building with much history, even it's own tartan. Very old tombs and nice surrounding area. Impressed by the cemetery higher up just behind the building and space in front in the shade to stop for a snack.

Glasgow Cathedral (also called the High Kirk of Glasgow, St Kentigern's or St Mungo's Cathedral) is beautiful! Lots of stained glass windows, war memorials (from the 1800s-WWII) and military colours, etc to look at along with the architecture itself.

St Mungo's Cathedral (Mungo was the familiar name of St Kentigern) sits on top of a knoll overlooking the upper reaches of the Clyde. When settled by Mungo and some followers, the knoll was already at the heart of a small community who called themselves...More
