Glasgow Cathedral Tours

star-5
70 Reviews
Glasgow Cathedral
Dating back to medieval times, Glasgow Cathedral is the only medieval cathedral on Scotland’s mainland to have survived the Reformation almost fully intact. A magnificent Gothic construction, it features stained-glass windows, a 15th-century stone choir screen, and the tomb of St. Mungo, Glasgow’s patron saint.

The Basics
Glasgow Cathedral is one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks and is among just a few surviving medieval buildings in all of Glasgow. Visitors can explore the church independently or go as part of a private guided tour around the city. Some sightseeing passes provide free entry to the cathedral as well as other well-known historic Scottish attractions, such as Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle, and Melrose Abbey. Guided tours, lasting one hour, are conducted by volunteer guides as required. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Glasgow Cathedral is a must for history buffs and fans of ecclesiastical architecture.
  • The west entrance to the cathedral provides access to the nave via a stair lift. Inside, some sections of the cathedral, such as the crypt and the Blackadder Aisle, are not wheelchair accessible. 
  • Visitors are welcome to attend Choral Evensong, which takes place most Sundays at 4pm. 

How to Get There
The cathedral is situated in Glasgow’s Cathedral Precinct, just north of Glasgow High Street. The nearest train station is High Street, a 10-minute stroll away. Walk north from the station along High Street and Castle Street. The cathedral will be on your right. 

When to Get There
The cathedral sees most visitors during the peak tourist months of June, July, and August. In winter, the cathedral receives less visitors. Volunteer guides are not available on Sundays. If you want to explore the interior, avoid going during service times because the Lower Church is closed and you may disturb worshippers. 

Glasgow Necropolis
Situated directly behind the cathedral, this vast Victorian cemetery spreads across the hillside, offering views of the surrounding city. Take a walk along the meandering paths, which area lined with some elaborate examples of funerary art. Some of the monuments, mausoleums, and tombs were designed by leading 19th-century architects.
Address: 28-32 Cathedral Square, Glasgow G4 0XA, Scotland
Admission: Free
