Calling all history lovers! Are you looking for something that will bring that love to life, all while on your next day out in Glasgow? Then, look no further than the Govan Old Parish Church! While attending the building, visitors can feast their eyes on the famous Govan Stones. These are medieval stones, carved around the 9th to 11th centuries when the area was part of the Kingdom of Strathclyde.

Where can I find the Govan Old Parish Church?

The church is located on Govan Road in the Southside of Glasgow, this area is serviced heavily by bus, subway and rail routes. The nearest Subway station is Govan Road which is located a short walk from the site.

The facility has undergone significant refurbishment and improvement since 2013, with the redisplay project aiming to educate and entertain all audiences, showcase the collection in an impressive way and obtain information on how the site may be used in the future. Interestingly, the stones have represented a connection with other important sites across the UK and Ireland. Including a similar site at York, where Slabs were found to resemble those in Govan.
