Run by our extremely, well-informed, volunteer tour guides who give their time and commitment to share their passion for this outstanding cemetery to the visitors to the Glasgow Necropolis. Our tours are designed to provide an introduction and overview to the 37 acre (15 hectare) historically significant Victorian Cemetery. Telling the stories of some of the 50,000 people interred within its magnificent gates and their contribution to making Glasgow the second City of the Victorian Empire.

All donations are hugely welcome and we do ask if you can be generous as all donations go entirely towards the conservation and restoration of the Glasgow Necropolis. Booking is essential. Our current restoration project is that of the Monteath Mausoleum.

Bespoke and private tours are also available.

Walking Tour Programme 2022
Prior booking is essential, with members of The Friends of the Glasgow Necropolis having priority booking. All other places will be allocated on a first come basis and the meeting point will be provided with every confirmed booking.

Please contact tours@glasgownecropolis.org with details of the tour that you wish to attend and the number of places that you wish to reserve. Please be aware our organisation is run by volunteers and as a result there may be a short delay in us getting back you. We’ll reply as soon as we can, so please be patient with us!
