Great visually stunning cemetery to meander around. Has a little cafe for a pit stop. Bring your camera as it's great for photography.

Arnos Vale Cemetery is undoubtedly the most beautiful part of Bristol. It has to be seen to be believed.

A beautiful and peaceful place in the heart of Bristol. Popular with photographers and just people who want to go for a walk or a coffee in the Atrium Cafe.

Fund-raising is evident by various committee and... More

I don't normally go around churchyards but this one is a must to go to. It was really facinating the way it was designed.

This is a huge and interesting cemetery, lots of wildlife there. You can walk your dog (on a lead), though we did not I am afraid. There is an excellent café and you can get married in the chapel there or have a woodland wedding in the grounds.
