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.

“Religous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

we visited not only the Glasgow Cathedral , but also the Multi Religious Centre on the same trip and its only a few yards across the square . Both were extremely interesting and most uplifting.. a similar atmosphere to St Anne's Cathedral in Belfast .

“Beautiful cathedral.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Beautiful, historic site. Worth a visit. Make sure to go to the Necropolis afterwards to get a better view of the Cathedral and the city.

“Not to be compared with other cathedrals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Well, this cathedral may have a compelling history, the inside is not that impressive. It really depends on the other cathedrals you may have visited, if you enjoy this one. Having been in Rome, Paris etc. this cathedralis only worth a quick look around.

“Gothic charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

This cathedral is a must see in Glasgow. It is very large and gothic. The stained glass windows and main building are quite spectacular.

“Nice cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The surroundings such as the garden and the necropolis is to see. The building is not the most spectacular but still impressive.
