Magnificent building.

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.

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

All cathedrals are magnificent and this is too but what surprised us was the inside - lots of 'churches' in one as there are places of worship on the lower levels too. Well worth a visit - free to enter but a suggested donation of £2 is more than reasonable to me.

Very impressive architecture with a fab surroundings. Also its near to city centre so I suggest a visit for 2 hours and just near to the cathedral there is an old grave yard which also worth to walk in.

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 the village of Descu. Mungo wrote to Rome to inform the Bishop of that City...

I have lived in Glasgow all my life and this was my first visit to this wonderful Cathedral, it was a fabulous experience and I wil be back. I loved the private chapel where you can pray and place notes.
