Our tour guides will tell the stories of both the notorious and the forgotten women who are buried in these atmospheric and ethereal surroundings, one of Glasgow’s most fascinating Victorian garden cemeteries.

All places must be paid for in advance as tour guides are not able to handle money on the day of the walk. Start point for the walk will be given in a confirmation email approximately 1 week prior to the walk and we will confirm once payment is received. Please check your spam or junk email folders if you have not received this in your inbox. Also, please note that the library is closed on a Saturday and Sunday so last minute bookings cannot be taken and messages will not be picked up until the Monday morning.
