    Description

    Step back in time to Victorian Bradford as local historians, Steve Lightfoot and John Jackson, lead you on a fascinating tour of Undercliffe Cemetery. Throughout this eye-opening ‘toddle round the tombs’, Lightfoot and Jackson will share insights into the cemetery’s history, from its opening in 1854 to the present day.

    Discover the looming gravestones that house Bradford’s social elite of old and explore the final resting places that mark the graves of those less fortunate, who were on the lower end of the social ladder.

    An engaging experience for historians and curious locals alike, this atmospheric walking tour will forever change your understanding of Undercliffe Cemetery and all who rest there.

    This is an outdoor walking tour. Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable footwear and weather-appropriate clothing.
