Sensory Tour - NEW
An accessible tour for all the senses, ideal for visually impaired visitors and their guides.
A multi-sensory tour designed especially for visually impaired visitors, featuring touch, smell, sound and audio descriptions to tell the story of this unique landscape and the people remembered here.
As a Victorian garden cemetery sprawling across 45 acres of ground and 170 years of Bristol's history, Arnos Vale is sadly not a fully accessible site. It contains uneven paths, steep slopes and steps which we recognise can provide a challenge to visually impaired visitors. In 2013 our volunteer guides took up this challenge by developing a new guided tour, which Arnos Vale Cemetery are pleased to launch in our programme of guided tours this summer.
Spaces are limited on this tour and it is advisable to book your space in advance. Warm clothing and sensible shoes are strongly recommended. Arnos Vale cemetery is not a fully accessible site and this tour route may involve some slopes and muddy or uneven paths. Find out more about visiting Arnos Vale safely here
