The Necropolis is located next to the Glasgow Cathedral on a hill overlooking the center of Glasgow. The Necropolis is a vast, well maintained cemetery with large monuments built for wealthy people of years gone by. The word Necropolis literally means “city of the dead”.
After crossing an old foot bridge near the Cathedral I entered the cemetery and started my own self guided tour of the monuments on the cemetery’s hill. From the hill you have a great view of parts of the city and can also see how big the cemetery really is. I did not have any literature on the Necropolis so just walked around and read plaques on the bigger monuments. On organization called The Friends of Glasgow Necropolis offer free tours and I wish I had the time to do that (I will definitely do that on my next visit). The tours are free but they accept donations. There is no fee to visit the Necropolis.
If you are visiting Glasgow I recommend that you visit this beautiful old graveyard.
