I haven't yet been to the "civilian" side of the cemetery. I've only visited the military side with some friends. However, it's still a lovely place to walk around, learn things, and make observations. The staff in the American section is very knowledgeable and helpful; they'll tell you some really interesting things about some of the people buried (and even... More

Since Brookwood Cemetery has gone back into Woking Borough Council's care, the amount of work being carried out is amazing. Headstones have been regained after years of neglect where flora and fauna had taken over. I see it improving on every visit. It is somewhere to gather your thoughts, see sadness when you read a headstone of someone taken well... More

We visited the cemetery with two friends from Australia who had flown in the previous day. We all found the grounds very peaceful and full of birdsong. The sculptures on the graves was very interesting and often quite charming. It is possible to drive through the Cemetary or just take a walk. Well worth a visit

Brookwood Cemetery is an amazingly large area of tranquil green space with well-defined walkways and good car parking. It contains some truly outstanding examples of Victorian & Gothic memorials - some remarkably well preserved - which was my main interest. There are several more recent Mausoleum developments & areas dedicated to particular religious groups with an on-site Monastery too. And... More

I have always lived close to the cemetery so try to use it as much as possible. You get a certain feeling when you visit. I would recommend if this is your first visit, bringing literature or read up on the place before you go, you will be surprised what you will learn (I won't give it away on here).... More

Yeah I'm surprised this even had a trip advisor page! However my grandad is buried here:( so we come here occasionally to pay our respects, and while we're there we lie, to walk around and look at the gravestones and take it all in. It's nice and peaceful, it's also very nice to read the gravestones and actually take a... More

Definitely worth a visit to this huge, interesting cemetery. All sorts of people from all sorts of communities and religions have been buried there, from Victorian times onwards. One needs a good few hours to explore it, and further visits. We found the staff very helpful and informative, both at the Commonwealth War Graves, and the Cemetery Office respectively. They...

We had been meaning to visit Brookwood Cemetery for year - and, typically, being on the doorstep, never got around to it. But, just recently, the Woking Magazine published a round walk from Pirbright that took in the Cemetery and so, it being a beautiful sunny Sunday, it seemed to be the right time to visit. It also happened to... More

Great work now going on to restore this historic site which had previously been neglected for too long. Would initially recommend a guided tour to start with this will certainly scratch the surface of the place. But a number of visits would really be needed to fully explore its many acres and hidden gems.
