Public guided walks around the Cemetery are held by the Society on the first Sunday of every month from March to November (see below for details). Groups requiring a guide for a private walk should contact the Society to discuss this on All monthly public walks start at 2pm unless otherwise indicated . Walks last around 90 minutes. All our guided walks now start from the entrance to the Glades of Remembrance, adjacent to the Cemetery Office.  There is a separate entrance to the Glades, with its own lay-by, off Cemetery Pales. Parking is available inside the entrance. Refreshments and toilet facilities are usually available.

A minimum suggested donation of three pounds (£3.00) per adult is made for these walks. No booking is necessary - just turn up and enjoy!

Brookwood Cemetery is near Woking, Surrey. It is adjacent to the A322 Guildford - Bagshot Road (Junction 3 off the M3). The entrance to the Cemetery is off Cemetery Pales, a road joining the A322 near the Brookwood cross-roads. See our location map. The postcode is   GU24 0BL.

If you want to arrange your own walk through the cemetery you must get permission from Brookwood Cemetery to do so.
