A Visit to the Glasgow Necropolis
If a tour of a cemetery fills you with dread rather than excitement, read on, you may just change your mind. Unbelievably Glasgow Necropolis walking tours are incredibly popular both with locals and visitors to Glasgow.
The Glasgow Necropolis is situated near the medieval St. Mungo’s Cathedral, on Glasgow’s second highest hill. The cemetery spans an incredible 37 acres and is the resting place of over 50,000 people. What is so interesting about this Victorian cemetery is its vastly different array of architecture, sculpture and stories about the many people buried here.
Bespoke and Private Tours are available to book by contacting The Friends of Glasgow Necropolis on email@example.com. It is advisable to book well in advance as availability of tour guides during Covid has affected the tours available. Tours last approx. 2 hours and donations can be made in advance of your tour.
Alternatively, you can take a self-guided tour, with the help of a guidebook, which leads you to the top 60 monuments in the Necropolis.
