A historical oasis of heritage. Tranquil with excellent cream tea. Dog friendly as well. After decades of neglect it's good to see the grounds being taken care of.

What a wonderful place, calm and tranquil. I am so glad that I accepted an invitation to visit with a friend who is tracing his family tree.
I will visit again soon and take more time to look around so nice to be able to have a coffee during a visit.
Visit soon, not at all morbid or sad in fact quite joyful.

great place to wander round for a few hours alone or with a family. Free entry and has a cafe. A little bit of tranquility not far from the heart of Bristol.

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
