Edinburgh World Heritage and the Friends of New Calton Burial Ground warmly invite you to a free guided walk in New Calton Burial Ground, where we will shine a light on this hidden treasure of the World Heritage Site.

New Calton Burial Ground is important as an early forerunner of the Victorian ‘Garden Cemetery’ in Edinburgh. Within its walls lie famous figures from Edinburgh’s history alongside unsung heroes whose stories we will celebrate.
