Glasgow Cathedral is also known as "High Kirk of Glasgow" or "St Kentigern's or St Mungo's Cathedral".
This medieval cathedral is a very important part of the lovely gothic architecture of Scotland. The church is indubitably stunning. The stone architecture is a matter of great pride for the place as well. The light flooding through the vibrantly painted stained glass windows is the kind of experience that will stay with you forever or maybe even keep you coming back for more. In fact, the church prides itself on its stained glass work. It is one of the most impressive you will see in Britain, for sure.
Moreover, the Glasgow cathedral is also a functioning church. The regular masses and prayers that are carried out might interest most culture seekers. It also has a lively tradition of church music and listening to a hymn concert is a wonderful experience.
For these reasons, a visit to Glasgow will remain incomplete without visiting this timeless piece of beauty.

Glasgow Cathedral, Glasgow Reviews - Write a Review
What a superb, historical building. Took a while to walk round and imbue the history. Lots to see and read. When I was there (Saturday lunchtime) it was very busy with many young tourists taking in the sights. Well worth also visiting the Necropolis Cemetery next door also.
We spent an hour in Glasgow Cathedral just looking at - and reading the inscriptions on - the beautiful stained-glass windows. On approach, the church is very imposing and full of lovely angles. The old stone glows in the sunlight and gives a feeling of solidity, reverence and serenity. It looks as though it has been there forever - as did one or two of the 'Friends' of the Cathedral. These folk were extremely knowledgeable and were very happy to answer our questions. There is no charge to enter and even the crypts are available to the public. There is, of course, the obligatory shop, but its wares are not overly expensive. Absolutely worth a visit when in Glasgow.
Went here for my college graduation. Got some time before the ceremony to talk to the staff sho had a wide knowledge and expertise on the place and were very friendly and helpful. The cathedral is amazing inside with the big stain glass windows. Would recommend to anyone who has an interest in architecture and old buildings.
It's very impressive. Day and night. It's near the Necropolis and it's exciting to explore it. Wonderful Gothic architecture.
Stunning attraction with extensive history. It is very accessible and a great experience to be able to walk throughout the church.
