Glasgow Cathedral - Review

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

  • Beautiful dark cathedral. It reminded me of the large church in Berlin. The epic stain glass windows tell many stories. There’s an underground crypt with art exhibitions and alters. With the necropolis on the hill above the cathedral this was one of our favorite stops in Glasgow.

  • The cathedral is beautiful and well kept. In the underground floor you may find some free temporary exposition (when I was there there was a lego exposition which was quite nice). The architecture is stunning and it is worth crossing the university zone to reach it. Last time there was some scaffolding both on the inside and on the outside. I hope to see it again without it.

  • The Glasgow Cathedral is worth the visit. It is a beautiful cathedral; many interesting details and there is also a crypt. On the time of my visit there was a Lego exhibition and it was a nice surprise. There are interesting museums and a necropolis next to the cathedral.

  • Nice cathedral to visit in Glasgow. Opening times vary depending on time of year (see photo), but admission is free, so well worth seeing. There is a lower level which had a strange Lego type exhibition setup. That seemed very out of place and can only imagine was to help raise funds from a 'corporate' perspective.

  • Worth a visit. You can wonder around the inside. The cathedral guides are very friendly and knowledgeble. You can also walk through the Necropolis and get some great views of the city from the top.
