Glasgow Cathedral is situated in central Glasgow. The cathedral currently is a gathering of the Church of Scotland but was previously Roman Catholic. The cathedral was built in the 12th century. The cathedral is sometimes locally referred to as Saint Mungo, as it is thought that the Saint of Glasgow, Saint Mungo built his church on the same location and the tomb of the saint is kept in the lower crypt. The cathedral was the home of the archbishop of Glasgow but has not been for a long time, so could technically be considered as not a cathedral. The cathedral is built with Scottish gothic architecture.
The cathedral is located very close to the city centre and is accessible by public transport.
