Towering above the rest of Glasgow is the Necropolis, which is apparently a fancy name for a large hill of graves. The Necropolis is one of those hauntingly beautiful places. Especially on a dreary autumn day.
After walking through the beautiful Victorian gates, the path leads you over a bridge and into the gorgeous cemetery.
Walking through the Necropolis, you’ll run across other people in the Necropolis taking a wee break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
If you’re lucky, you might even run into a few puppies taking their owners for walks.
Even though you are smack dab in the city center, the Necropolis is eerily quiet and calm.
I love the splashed of color that you will catch throughout the Necropolis. Even on a dreary day, there’s something that really makes it pop.
The Necropolis is set just behind Glasgow Cathedral and the main hospital for the city center and east end, the Royal Infirmary.
Along one of the paths, there are loads of mausoleums just lining the pathway.
I love when they’ve got a fresh coat of paint and really pop against the grey of the stones and sky.
There’s a part of me that doesn’t think a cemetery should be something that tourists go to see, but then there is something calming about a cemetery. The idea for prominent cemeteries in Britain came about after Parisians created the Père Lachaise cemetery.
