Bolton Street Cemetery

Bolton Street Cemetery is home to Wellington's oldest cemetery, which dates back to 1840. Many of early Wellington's notable figures are buried here. The cemetery offers a tranquil and historically interesting escape from the city, just minutes from the centre. There is a heritage rose collection inspired by original graveside plantings. Blooms peak from November to December.
