Venue Description

The most complete medieval cathedral on the Scottish mainland is still a working church with an active congregation. From its magnificent nave and choir to the atmospheric crypt of St Mungo, who was supposedly buried here in AD 614, Glasgow Cathedral is full of intriguing features. Look for the tomb of Bishop Wishart, a key supporter of Robert the Bruce, and carvings of 11 figures - perhaps the faithful disciples of Christ - on the stone pulpitum screen. Opening Times 29 Mar to 30 Sept: Mon to Sat, 9.30am to 5pm; Sun, 1pm to 5pm (last entry 4.15pm). The lower church closes at 4.15pm. 1 Oct to 28 Mar: Mon to Sat, 10am to 4pm; Sun, 1pm to 4pm (last entry 3.30pm). The lower church closes at 3.15pm. We recommend booking online in advance to guarantee entry. The cathedral may close for lunch from 12pm to 1pm. If you plan to visit at this time, please call ahead to check.
