Owner description: The medieval Glasgow Cathedral has been in constant use for worship for over 800 years, and is of great architectural and historic interest. Highlights include one of the finest post-war collections of stained glass windows in Britain, and the ceiling in the Blackadder Aisle which was built around 1500 by Archbishop Blackadder. Cared for by Historic Scotland and open to visitors throughout the year from 9.30am except Sundays when it is open at 1pm. Recitals and special family events are a regular feature. Closing times vary seasonally.

“Amazing place to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

If you are in Glasgow or near Glasgow , you should see this amazing and very historical place which is a mediaeval cathedral.

Also , near there there are Necropolis and St.Mungo Religion Museum which you should visit.

Enjoy your trip ;)

“Historically Excellent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

A must for Religiously minded people. Not far from the oldest house in Glasgow and a few yards downhill gets you to the Museum of religion. So three for the price of one cant be bad.

“Fantastic History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

If you can attend on one of the Trades days you will be amazed.
Did not see catering on my visit but probably fairly basic but good value.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

I love cathedrals and this one is a cracker. Beautiful inside at the foot of the Necropolis. Definetely worth a visit and I am not religious.
