Night at the Cemetery Guided Tour

Come over to the dark side

Revealing the darker side of Arnos Vale at dusk, in an atmospheric exploration of tragic tales, folk customs and funeral etiquette of Victorian society.

Soak  up the gothic gloom and ethereal beauty of Bristol's "Necropolis" on a summer evening as you travel along paths overhung with creeping branches, descend into the mortuary crypt and listen out for things that go bump in the night.  Booking is essential as places on this popular annual event sell out quickly - so book your tickets now!

Arnos Vale is not a fully accessible site.  PLEASE NOTE: this event takes place around dusk (times vary throughout the year) and on steep slopes and narrow muddy paths around Arnos Vale.  Please wear sensible shoes, warm clothes and bring a torch to this event.
