Walks around the Cemetery are stunning what ever the season.
Theres lots of history. The War Graves are worth a visit.

“Not just a cemetery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Not just a cemetery, but a an interesting adventure through Bristol's past. Take a walk around the gravestones, admire the Victorian Chapels. Take a glimpse into the past beneath the Cafe (good brownie), where the history of Arnos Vale is laid out, and you can stick your head in the old cemetery oven if you wish! A great place of a walk, its about 42 acres of winding paths, flat, downhill, uphill, choose your own route. Well worth an hour or so.

Lots of nooks and crannies and paths to investigate, a pleasant place for a walk and a coffee. Would be great for Halloween!

“So much to see and learn about”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

What an amazing historical collection of gravestones, statues and religious buildings. The cemetry is minutes from the modern city centre but it feels like the middle of the countryside. There are woodland walks, statuesque trees, birds and squirrels. A peaceful spot with things for all the family to enjoy. The cafe is great value, too.
