At 2:30, historic walking tours will invite guests to explore Glenwood’s spectacular Victorian Cemetery, set on 62 acres in the heart of Picton.

The cemetery, founded in the 32nd year of the reign of Queen Victoria, is still one of the most serene places to take a stroll in Prince Edward County. Discover its rich past as an experienced guide Peter Lockyer leads a 45-minute journey back in time. Starting at the Stone Chapel and then gracefully wind through Glenwood’s network of roads and footpaths, along the way you will discover monuments of some of the County’s Victorian and notable citizens.
