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.
