Venue Intro:

Glasgow Cathedral is built on the site where St Kentigern, or Mungo, the first bishop within the ancient British kingdom of Strathclyde, was thought to have been buried in AD 612.

The present cathedral was built during the 13th to 15th centuries and is the only medieval cathedral on the Scottish mainland to have survived the 1560 Reformation virtually complete.

Getting There:

Glasgow Cathedral is on the eastern edge of Glasgow city centre and is accessible on foot from the centre by walking north up High Street from Glasgow Cross (Merchant city), or by going east along cathedral Street from Buchanan Street. The Necropolis is on high ground adjacent to Glasgow Cathedral and is not very accessible to anyone who has difficulty walking up steep and sometimes soft paths.
