Volunteers from the Friends of Brompton Cemetery lead public guided tours of the cemetery on Sunday afternoons, and offer private tours by arrangement during the week. The Friends' noticeboards, near the Old Brompton Road and Fulham Road entrances, display current information about tours, events and other items of interest to Friends and other visitors to the cemetery. The public tours are offered every Sunday from May to August, and on two Sundays each month from September to April. Tours begin at 14:00 from the South Lodge, just inside the Fulham Road entrance, and last about two hours. A donation of at least £6 per person contributes toward the work of the Friends.
