Event Description

Glasgow Cathedral dates back as far as the 12th century. It is the most complete surviving medieval cathedral on the Scottish mainland, having survived the Protestant Reformation of 1560 almost intact.

Over time, various bishops left their mark through alterations and expansion, including the addition of the rows of Gothic arches and windows with stone divisions (called slender tracery). 

On this Insight Tour, our District Architect will guide you through the ongoing programme of conservation works, including the replacement of stone in a pinnacle of the North transept.

Additional information: Individuals will be provided with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the form of a hard hat, high visability vest and steel toe cap boots. Please inform us of your shoe size when booking.
