The cemetery is fascinating. We downloaded a map online and did our own tour. The entire cemetery is accessible by car. So, if you know which graves you are infestered in, you can get there without walking. That was nice in July! I think I...More

My husband and I spent a wonderful afternoon with Mr. E. L. Butterworth, our Gem Car Tour Guide. E.L. Is a living encyclopedia about the history of Richmond and its Hollywood Cemetery. This is a unique, unforgettable experience.

You can ride through the Cemetery, stop anytime and visit all the gravesites. So much history, and it's all free.

This was an unexpected gem on my trip to Richmond to visit my daughter. There was a lot of walking which we found great, but if you're not mobile skip the walking tour. The monuments, the history and landscaping were all worth the trip. Our...More

Off the beaten path, you can see hundreds of years of history in one cemetary. Well laid out with views of the James. Many monuments to famous and influential men and women of Virginia. A must see.

Home to several presidents as well as other famous historical figures, it's actually a beautiful place to take a stroll on a nice day. I usually visit it the spring or late fall, when temperatures are more moderate

Despite 100 degree weather and high humidity was time well spent. More like a park than a graveyard. Foliage adds to the beauty and charm of the monuments of the dearly departed. From families to Generals and Presidents. Great beauty and history here. Hill top...More

Lovely historic cemetery. Jefferson Davis is buried here, as well as Fitzhugh Lee. Two U.S. presidents are buried here as well. The cemetery is beautifully maintained. We had the surprise of seeing a man dressed as a confederate soldier walking his dog through cemetery.

This is a great place to pack a lunch and plan on spending at least 4 to 5 hours here. You can walk all through the cemetery and visit the historical plots of servicemen as well as some presidents. Great trip for field trips .

It's often the case that you finf peace and quitness at a cemetery. Hollywood offers you that and more. This "more" is the spectecular view over the Jamesriver. Parking is (limited) available on the cemetery. It seems parking is also available across the street.

Richmond is a city where you can be very safe one minute but walking one block over puts you in a dangerous area. Being that you are from the UK, I would suggest that you be cautious and careful. Walking from the Capitol to... More
