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.

“How did they build such an immense structure all those years ago?!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2011

I was amazed at the size of this cathedral. It was absolutely enormous insde. It is truly unbelieveable that with the limited resources and machinery they had way back when this church was built that they were able to create such a building. I highly recommend a visit if you are in Glasgow. It was very interesting to walk around and look at the various dedications and rooms and St Mungos tomb.

“A blend of old and new”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2011

The cathedral is quite interesting to walk around but it lacked a wow factor which may be something to do with the style of religion in these parts. I'm not criticising it, that's just my observation of it. People with an interest in Scottish religion would doubtless find it very interesting as there's a lot of history bound up in the place.
