The Necropolis

Rising up behind Glasgow Cathedral and inspired by the Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris, the atmospheric Necropolis is a grassy mound covered in a fantastic assortment of crumbling gravestones, ornate urns, gloomy catacombs and Neoclassical temples.

Various paths lead through the rows of eroding, neglected graves, and from the summit there are superb views of the city with its mix of grit and grace.

Free one hour tours of the cemetery are run by Glasgow City Council.
