An absolutely lovely place, lots to see and discover. Have been many many times and still find something new each visit. Lots of walks, great for Dog walking too!

“What a magical place!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

This cemetery is a beautiful wildlife haven on the edge of the City Centre, with grand old crumbling graves and stunning atmosphere. Tread lightly and with respect!

“A beautiful place to visit rain or shine.”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

A true treasure of a place to visit in gloomy or beautiful weather. Lovely walks and fantastic wildlife. So quiet too, you would never guess you are right next to the A4! The cafe is brilliant too, tasty treats and at good prices, lovely friendly staff as well. I'll definitely be back.

“peace, tranquility and dead folk”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

A fantastic walk, plenty of history and interesting buildings. Highly recommend for all ages, although some of the paths are a little steep and untreated. A nice coffee shop too.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Arnos Vale is a slightly different place to visit : but definitely worth a trip! Absolutely fascinating! Enjoyed looking at the yarn creatures in the trees: the various different names on the graves, and who is buried here - a really interesting look into Bristols social history. I do have family members buried here, but absolutely no idea where! Lovely looking restaurant on site, and some good walking (though take wellies as a bit muddy!)
