Wouldn't have been aware of the stones' existence had it not been for a leaflet in our hotel, which apparently was something the church started doing earlier this year. Lovely old church with some interesting artefacts, the Govan Stones being the major thing. Really interesting...More

We only found out about this place when we saw the free ferry advertised outside the Riverside Museum. Took the trip, very friendly boat personnel. The church and stones were very interesting, and much work has gone into the display. Worth a visit.

The place was quite good, with a few interesting stones and what they call sarcophagus (not really). The tour guy was amazing super friendly and well informed. You should be careful of the area though, as you will see a lot of junkies around.

We spent more than an hour wandering round the old church exploring the 31 monuments and the early medieval sculpture. Also the Viking hogback stones and the Govan Sarcophagus which is amazing.

The church is quite hidden, but not hard to find. However, you can walk past it and never notice. Anyway, the church itself really spacious and cozy. And it also has a collection of archeological stones. The church is near the subway station, so you...More
