The tour includes important sites of the historic Jewish community, including where the North London Synagogue once stood.

A rich cast of politicians, founders of business empires, inventors, mathematicians, artists, architects, writers, eccentrics, and villains is promised – not forgetting the many people with more ordinary lives who made up the community.

Guided tour @ Plymouth England Jewish Cemetery
May 26 @ 11:00 – 16:00

Excursions every 15 minutes, as part of the Plymouth History Festival

Located on Plymouth’s historic Hoe, in the shadow of The Citadel, lies the Old Jewish Cemetery. Contained within high stone walls it has always remained hidden from public view. The only clue to its existence is an insignificant door. With the aid of funding from Vital Sparks and Drakes Foundation, an audio trail has been created, bringing to life the lives of those buried.

Sensible footwear required.

MP3s and head phones available on the day or bring your own head phones and/or your own smart phone.

Donations welcome / Booking essential / phccaretaker@yahoo.co.uk / 07753267616 / www.plymouthsynagogue.com
