Walking Tours


At Glenwood Cemetery, we encourage visitors to schedule walking tours of our lovely grounds. Not only do our tours provide the perfect opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors, but you're sure to learn something along the way. Knowledgeable docents will offer all sorts of interesting information regarding our notable interred and the stunning architecture spread across our location.

Our walking tours move at a leisurely pace, and cover about 1.5 miles. All vehicles must be left at the cemetery entrance prior to the start of your tour. Keep in mind, there are no public restrooms available on our property. Additionally, open tour dates are generally limited, so reservations will be granted on a first come, first served basis.


Schedule an Upcoming Walking Tour


If you're interested in scheduling a docent-guided walking tour of our grounds, be sure to contact one of the knowledgeable representatives at Preservation Houston. Our tours are available to individuals by reservation. We additionally offer private tours for local groups. It's truly never been easier to enjoy the great outdoors and learn about our historic site.

All established times are subject to change in the event of a scheduled burial on the date of your tour. Your tour may also be delayed due to inclement weather. Time changes will be posted on our website, and those holding reservations will be notified as far in advance as possible.
