This is a beautiful building, lots to see and explore. Loved all the faded history of the flags and standards etc. Very poignant for us to see the name of a fallen soldier that we knew memorialised on a wall plaque. Nice spaces down stairs...More

It's a good twenty minutes walk from the city centre, but it's well worth the effort. Building is spectacular and it was pretty sunny when I went which really set the building off. Great inside too. Free entry and staff were very friendly.

I love the architecture of old churches. This one was excellent. You can see repair work from war blasts but the overall structure was saved. I especially loved the nurses prayer area in the basement.

This is a very large building, equivalent to Durham cathedral I would think although it lacks its warmth in both physical and human terms. The building is not pretty but is imposing and so solidly built. We are very lucky to have buildings such as...More

This cathedral is one of the most beautifully understated that I have ever visited. The simplicity only emphasis the sheer beauty of the windows. The Glasgow guilds window is a history lesson presented better than lessons I had at school.
