Private tours are a great idea as a gift. Ideal for small and large groups and organisations. Booking is essential.

Planning your Visit

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.
