Glasgow Cathedral & Necropolis
The 12th century Glasgow Cathedral once towered over the city and is still going strong 800 years later. While much of the medieval architecture remains and can be admired, the cathedral also has one of the best post-war collections of stained glass windows in Britain, as well as a bright 'Millennium Window' in the nave which was unveiled in 1999. A number of events are also held here throughout the year, many of which are music events from guest performers. Meanwhile, it is worth continuing your visit to the Glasgow Necropolis, which is situated on a prominent hill nearby. Around 50,000 people have been laid to rest in this Victorian cemetery and has great examples of 19th century tombs and monuments. Many of the monuments have been designed by well-known architects including Charles Rennie Macintosh for wealthy family tombs. Then, head over to Glasgow Green for more leisurely strolls!
