On street parking is available in St Mark’s Road and Crescent Road. Space between gravestones is narrow in some places but wheelchairs can get to most of the site, which is level. The Churchyard is relatively small so no need to walk far but seating is not available on site. This is a very peaceful area so good for anyone who doesn’t like crowds. Let the tour guide know if you have any special needs. Toilets, refreshments and lunches are available in The Anglesey Hotel, just opposite.
