Visit: Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bristol

  • Arnos Vale Cemetery |
  •  |
In 1837 an Act of Parliament enabled the Bristol General Cemetery Company to open Arnos Vale cemetery in the grounds of a Georgian mansion. This began to solve the problem of overcrowding in inner city churchyards. It was set out as a Greek Necropolis with mortuary chapels around a garden set out with plants from classical legend. Its backdrop, a steep hillside, is terraced like an amphitheatre. Enjoy a short talk followed by a guided tour to see the completed restoration work. The ground is uneven, especially in the furthest reaches.
