360° Interactive Virtual Tour of Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bristol

With some time to kill before my train after a meeting in Bristol CIty Centre I went for a walk and stumbled across Arnos Vale Cemetery -  an overgrown, wooded graveyard on the Bath Road.  As you enter the cemetery it looks well kept and even boasts a stylish cafe and wedding venue, but as you explore further you find your self in an enchanting environment of thick undergrowth and ivy covered graves. 

Some may say it's a bit morbid hanging around in graveyards but I was completely taken with it and vowed I would come back with my camera.  Next time I was in Bristol I did just that and here is the result.

The grounds were established in 1839 with a layout inspired by the famous Père-Lachaise cemetery in Paris. The aim was to create a spacious and green garden cemetery with references to the classical Greek style whilst also relieving some of the overcrowding being experienced by other cemeteries in the city.  Today it is a welcome refuge from the hustle and bustle of Bristol and finds itself being re-purposed for events and recreation whilst also upholding the memory of those who are buried there.

More information can be found on the Arnos Vale Cemetery website at www.arnosvale.org.uk.
