Best for History - Expert review of Glasgow Cathedral
Tied to the city’s history, Glasgow Cathedral is built on the tomb of Saint Mungo, the patron saint of the city and the first bishop within the ancient British kingdom of Strathclyde. A superb example of Gothic architecture – in a similar design to the West End’s University area – the building is often lauded as a high point of cathedral architecture in Europe. As the only medieval cathedral on the Scottish mainland to have survived the 1560 Reformation in one piece, regardless of your faith it’s certainly worth a wander.
