Walking around here is awesome. The birds go hell for leather, the gravestones are tumbling down the hillside and being broken apart by nature and there's an amusing competitive vibe amongst the graves that gives you insight into Bristol life 150 years ago. It's so...More

Don't miss this on your visit to Bristol. There are tours and events all through the year, and there's also an excellent cafe and visitor's centre. Some wonderful memorials in a beautifully landscaped setting.

This cemetery is just a short walk for me and we do enjoy taking a stroll on a Sunday as a family. The cafe on-site is great and well worth a visit.
