This is an immense Gothic pile but what surprised us this time around was its undercroft which stretched the whole of the upper floors. For some reason, the area closest to the later was roped off...

There isn't an entry fee into Glasgow Cathedral but believe me you won't hesitate putting money into the donation box on your way out. It is a magnificent place to visit. The cathedral is breathtaking when you first see it, perfectly positioned with the graves on a steep hill behind it. There are plenty people around to ask about different things. It is like a tardis with room after room and on different levels. I will let the pictures do the talking, I couldn't do it justice. Give yourself plenty time to see everything.
Beautiful building regardless of your faith; Glasgow Cathedral presents an invaluable insight into the city's history and is well worth a visit. The Gothic architecture is even more stunning in person, and there are a number of artifacts and historic areas of the building that are accompanied by descriptions.
