Well worth a visit here. Architecture is amazing. We went early so it wasn't too busy. Very impressive and good for photos too. My mother loved it.

Well worth the walk out from the Centre (15mins); lots to see and learn from the guide sheet and the notice boards situated around the cathedral. The crypt is fantastic and like a whole new world beneath the church

Incredible place to visit. The history is palpable in there. My only sadness was it originally was a Roman Catholic Cathedral now under the Church of Scotland. Nothing against the Church of Scotland but the building was designed for Roman rituals so in a way...More

A morning walk to this Gothic Cathedral and very well worth the experience. A great deal of history from the past was available to be absorbed.

A gorgeous building, which is nice to walk around. There is a little shop as one enters, which sells a nice array of Scottish-themed gifts.

The cathedral is not very big, it is simple and not crowded during our visit. We can take our time to enjoy the place peacefully. But we saw something more interesting up on the hill behind the cathedral.

Really nice and peaceful and not at all crowded (Wednesday afternoon). The inside is quite plain compared to many other cathedrals but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The tomb of St Mungo downstairs is worth a visit; the steps down with hundreds of years...More
