Cemetery opening times

Our Cemetery Audio Trail is, once more, part of the 2018 Plymouth History Festival, the first is this weekend, on Sunday 6th May. See below for more information


Sunday 6 and Sunday 27 May
Tours start at 11am and run every 15 minutes until 4pm / Last entries at 3pm
Tours last for one hour
Old Jewish Cemetery, Lambhay Hill, Plymouth PL1 2NP
Located on Plymouth’s historic Hoe, in the shadow of The Citadel, lies a hidden secret: the Old Jewish Cemetery. Contained within high stone walls it has always remained hidden from public view. The only clue to its existence is an insignificant door.

With the aid of funding from Vital Sparks and Drakes Foundation, an audio trail has been created in the garden cemetery, bringing to life the lives of those buried there. In 1740 this plot was a family garden; today it is a calm oasis that hides a wealth of history and culture.

Please wear sensible footwear. MP3’s and head phones will be available on the day but please feel free to bring your own head phones and/or your own smart phone.

The audio trail will also be running in the Synagogue Vestry with tea/coffee and seating on Tuesday 15 May at 2pm for anyone who is unable to make it to the Hoe or would like to listen to it in comfort.
