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.

Beautiful old Church. Dark, with fine woodwork and stained glass. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. I was not on a tour, but one of the attendees was nice enough to show me some ancient Hebrew graffiti in the lower crypt. Surprised me to see it in a church so far north. Grounds were well maintained. We were there in the fall, so the church yard with the fall leaves was lovely. Bit of a hike from the city center, take a bus.
Good Cathedral. There are less ornaments than catholic churches, because people used to go there to listen the priest, and to talk between them. Nice to see it.
Amazing place full of interesting history I had passed hundreds of times but never visited until entertaining family from France. Across from Provands Lordship which is also very interesting and worth a visit.
What an incredible experience to be able to enjoy the Architecture in the history of such a old building. Does it matter what faith you are it is unavailable to get caught in the romance of such history a return would be in order
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.
