Cathedral Precinct

St Mungo Museum and Provand’s Lordship are part of the Cathedral Precinct, at the heart of medieval Glasgow. 

Whilst you are here, why not visit the other places that are close by. The Cathedral of St Mungo, patron saint of Glasgow, originates from the 13th century and is the finest surviving Gothic building in Scotland. It is also the only major cathedral on the Scottish mainland to survive the Reformation. 

Cross the bridge from the precinct to Glasgow Necropolis, a spectacular Victorian cemetery that is also now home to many wildlife species. This is an ideal spot to take time out to explore all the Cathedral Precinct has to offer and get an insight into Glasgow’s long and turbulent history and its medieval roots.
