Dominated by the statue of John Knox, this is an old cemetery on a small hill right behind Glasgow Cathedral . Its design was based on the Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris and the elaborate tombs are home to many obscure Glasgow Victorian dignitaries and a few famous ones. It was established in 1831 by the Merchants' House of Glasgow and several well-known local architects such as Alexander 'Greek' Thomson had a hand in the design of memorials and mausoleums. On weekdays, guides are available to show visitors round the cemetery. Excellent views of the cathedral and beyond can be enjoyed from the top of the hill. Admission is free.
This place is amazing and peaceful. Great view of the city from this perch...makes the big *G* look shiny and happy. Sadly, a lot of the momuments are being abused by weather and young kids...in the past year I have noticied a definite increase in the # of broken head stones. Still highly recomended.
