Nice place to walk around, lots of history, dogs allowed in some areas. But it can be tricky if your dog wants to spray on the graves. Also the tombs are so interesting, you can see the coffins through the gated bars. Also Sherlock Holmes...More

Well worth dropping into this calming cemetery which sits in the heart of the city. Perhaps not the safest place as there are some rough looking people prowling about. My understanding is there are some famous people buried here. I always find it surreal to...More

This cemetery is calm, beautiful and very well looked-after. It has a long walkway in the middle, trees on either side form a protective feeling as you walk down - almost like an umbrella above you head. A £6.2 million pounds refurbishment has revitalised areas....More

I spent today at the cemetery with a friend looking at the Commonwealth War Graves. It was bucketing down with rain so there weren't very many people around. Perhaps that's why we didn't feel particularly safe. Things started off well with tea in the North...More

There is no fee to pay to walk around the cemetery. It is unusual in that it is both a place for burials and a public park.
