  • Beautiful old area. Nice to walk around and read the old headstones..
  • Perhaps the oldest boneyard on the island. It's quite beautiful in the summer and well located near the sea.
  • A fantastic place for a stroll. The cemetery is full of Victorian history, and only a guided tour can really do it justice. Even on your own though, it's very cool to stroll and marvel at the old headstones.
  • This 19th century cemetery has amazing headstones, and beautiful trees. They do tours every Sunday leaving at 2 from the Plaza across the street. Cost is minimal and they tell you great stories about people buried in the cemetery. Keep an eye out for Emily Carr's grave too!
  • Beautiful spot to walk and reflect. The old Graves are so lovely.
