Owner description: The Necropolis, Glasgow's Victorian City of the Dead, is a vast and grand cemetery modeled on Père-Lachaise in Paris. Described as one of the most significant cemeteries in Europe, it is a major visitor attraction and patrolled by Park Rangers. Heritage Trail maps are available to guide the visitor to the memorials and tombs of some of Glasgow's most eminent citizens.

Beautiful part of City.
Good for a sunny day walk.
Shame about some graffiti.
Bit difficult to figure out a continuous path.
Lovely views from the top.
Better if you have the information leaflet from tourist ino.

We took the City bus tour and got off at the Necropolis, we were awarded with fabulous views over the city along with a very interesting array of 'over the top' Victorian gravestones. Slightly difficult to find the path out but when we found it it was a short walk back to the city centre.

The Necropolis is accessed from the grounds of Glasgow Cathedral, you can pick a tour map of the Necropolis from the tourist info, dont turn up without one, the info is fascinating. Views across Glasgow are outstanding.

Not a normal recommendation to wander around a graveyard but some of the large and ornate gothic-type structures very near to the Cathedral are worth a visit. A fine illustration of the wealth that Glasgow used to accummulate through trade
