The Necropolis has been described as a ‘unique representation of Victorian Glasgow, built when Glasgow was the second city of the empire. It reflects the feeling of confidence and wealth and security of that time.
The Necropolis remains one of the most significant cemeteries in Europe, exceptional in its contribution to the townscape, its symbolic relationship to Glasgow Cathedral and to the medieval heart of the City.
It is a major attraction to visitors from the UK and oversees.It is also a ‘park’ valued by Glaswegian’s for study. On a clear day looking west, one may see the valley of the Clyde bounded by the hills of Cowal, Kyle and Cunninghame.
