My ancestors are buried here, and it is a fine and fitting place. Go there for the tranquility, the atmosphere, and the history. A monument well worth preserving.

what a beautiful place saved from the hands of a developer and free for anyone to visit. A place of tranquility near a busy road a place for wildlife amongst the graves of many famous bristolians and the Indian social reformer Raja ~R~oy Lots of trails a exhibition space and a lovely little gift shop. A very good cafe where you can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet and until September there is a very good grommet. a must to visit whilst in Bristol

I had been given the plot details of a relative via the online council service, and turned up with a map of the cemetery. The groundsman that was working there could not have been more helpful in directing me, and also gave me a potted history of the place. It was a welcoming and very well-tended cemetery, with plenty of parking.

Arnos Vale really is fab. Such an interesting place to go and explore. Great for a post lunch walkabout or for a cultural explore. We had great fun checking out the graves from the utterly magnificent to the simple, the whole area has a relaxing feel and there is obviously a proud community geared up to support the management and restoration.

A super place to wonder, ponder and view.

Arnos Vale cemetery is an oasis in a bustling city. It has some spectacular grave stones some dating back 200 plus years all set in what have been formal gardens. The gardens need a little attention but don't distract from the main area of interest Bristol's social history. Should you need rest or refreshment there's a lovely little café in what was formally a crematorium. It certainly makes for interesting coffee and chat!
