This Tour has now SOLD OUT.
A century on from the British declaration of war in Germany in August 1914, we visit some of the graves of service personnel and civilians from the Great War, at rest in Arnos Vale.
Arnos Vale’s Great War memorial was built in 1921 at Soldiers’ Corner to mark the graves of Great War casualties who died in Bristol’s hospitals. The cemetery is the last resting place of servicemen from all over the world - as well as local people who lived through the war.
From underage conscripts to the war at home, discover the individual stories and sacrifices of wartime and visit the War memorials and family graves across the cemetery.
Warm clothing and sensible shoes are strongly recommended.
Arnos Vale Cemetery is not a fully accessible site.
This tour route may include some steep slopes, steps, and muddy or uneven paths.
