Afternoon Out with Our Dearly Departed: Victorian Picnic

Sunday, September 8, 2019 at 10:00 AM

Before the existence of public parks and botanical gardens, there were few retreats from the crowded city for 19th-century Philadelphians. Boasting breathtaking art, stunning architecture and carefully curated horticulture, Victorians flocked to Laurel Hill with their picnics in tow for reflection, relaxation and recreation. Spend a morning enjoying the grounds, a panoramic river view and towering monuments just like Victorians did 183 years ago on this guided walking tour and group picnic. Bring your own picnics, blankets and/or beach chairs. Victorian-themed attire is very much encouraged.

The walking tour will take place on Sunday, September 8 at 10:00 am. Enter at Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse.

Ticket pricing is $15/General Admission, $13/Seniors (65 & Up), $13/Students with ID, $10/Members, $7.50/Youth (6-12), and $0/Child (5 & Under). Tickets can be purchased at the door or online.

Please note - youth and children must be accompanied by an adult.
