Glasgow Necropolis

We organise guided walking tours of this 37 acre cemetery full of wonderful architecture, sculpture and fascinating stories relating to the 50,000 people remembered here. As a charity, donations we receive from our tours are used for restoration work. We are always looking for new information – please contact us [email protected] if you can contribute to our website. We are particularly keen to hear from descendants of the ‘incumbents’ that can provide profiles of those buried here.

The Glasgow Necropolis is located near Glasgow’s medieval St Mungo’s Cathedral and is on the second highest hill in Glasgow. In winter months the weather can be very intemperate so
please wear suitable clothing and footwear suitable for the uneven paths. Allow approximately 2 hours for your visit as the cemetery covers 37 acres. If you have to rest please use some of the low walls to sit on. Please do not climb on the memorials, please keep to the paths and if you are not on one of our tours there are no toilet facilities apart from nearby St Mungo’s Museum. Please note St Mungo’s is closed on Mondays and closes on other days at 5pm.
