Romantic and beautiful.

Really interesting, well worth a walk around. There are some interesting stones here of famous Bristol business people of the past. The cafe is fine.

A great place to while away an afternoon in contemplation. Equally a brilliant place for the atmospheric photographer.

Visited Cemetery with Fiancée and her Mother. Was advised to bring camera. Lovely summers day. Some good photos though may be better visiting early morning/ evening with some fog/mist for more atmospheric. Visited cafe for drinks. Served by a young lady, very pleasant though seemed to be struggling to get orders out. She seemed to be the only person there... More

This is an interesting place to visit. It's been cared for since it came out of private ownership. A though provoking place.

BEST THING EVER I absolutely despite that they say dogs have to be on leads as my dog has been off the lead there for 8 years and it's such a good walk. Beautiful, historical, cute cute cute cute cute Cafe there has no sugar free coffee syrups, milk frothing is horrific but not shabby overall.

We went on a rainy wintery Sunday morning at the early part of the year. What a place to experiance. It just goes on and on., and with nobody else walking around the place was mesmerising.. there are hundreds of tomes all with a story.. You can spend hours here.......... Go in the rain you'll have memories for years
