We were on a cycling tour and rode through this cemetery. Many important public figures, but one of the more interesting portions is the area where all the confederate soldiers are buried. The day we visited, there was an honor group reading the names of...More

This cemetery is a park-like setting. You can drive through the cemetery or get out to walk around. It's well worth visiting this place, which is so close to the historic district, in order to see the trees, pond, monuments and birds. After you visit...More

Although the Hunley crew is buried here and that's one of its main attractions for tourists, this beautifully maintained historic cemetery is also a great place for photography, birdwatching and just walking. Hundreds of old tombstones, a beautiful white footbridge, and water all around.

I love going to this cemetery and just wondering around. The various styles of headstones and monuments are just amazing. Last time I went, there had been a new family vault built that had to cost a fortune. Much more interesting than just a small...More

There are at least three cemeteries side by side. Bethel and St Lawrence contain many interesting grave markers. We visited all three. There are markers dating back to colonial days. Two features we discovered were the Confederate Soldiers area with a monument along with several...More

Is there any way to reach the cemetery from downtown Charleston via shuttle or tour bus? (We would need a round trip.)

The transit (CARTA) runs from the city to Cunnington Street but there are no tour buses allow in Magnolia Cemetery. You would have to inquire with the shuttle service as to what they offer.

Can it be reached by the water taxi? Is it walkable from the King Charles Inn on Meeting Street?

We are not accessible by water taxi and a walk from the King Charles Inn would be a bit far.
