We all loved driving through this cemetery rich in history and overlooking the James River. Definitely worth the visit! Be sure to find the graves of Presidents Monroe and Tyler. You’ll also find Jefferson Davis further back.
This garden-style cemetery can be walked (wear comfortable footwear and be prepared to spend several hours) or driven through carefully. Its gravestones and statuary are typical of their eras, and are poignant reminders of how present death, particularly of the young, was in earlier times....More
I love walking through here and checking out the older graves. Definitely a cool place to stop by! If you don’t want to walk, you can drive through instead!

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 the museum of the confederacy to the John Marshall House is probably safe during the day. But be careful! Richmond has a rough side.
