Ceremonial Way Tour
A fully accessible tour of the Ceremonial Way - the main path and most prestigious graves of Arnos Vale, with stories of some of Bristol's historic inhabitants.
Arnos Vale's 45 acres of hillside paths can prove an access challenge for some of our visitors. Which is why we are delighted to offer this gentle-paced tour of the most accessible graves and listed buildings along Ceremonial Way.
Ceremonial Way is a broad circular carriageway at the heart of Arnos Vale cemetery, designed for use by the Victorian funeral corteges and featuring some of the most high status graves and fashionable garden design from the Victorian era. This tour includes a general introduction and the notable people to be found on a route suitable for wheelchair and stick users. Some bench seating is available along the route. Warm clothing and sensible shoes are strongly recommended. Please note that this route includes main vehicle access route used by cars visiting the cemetery.
