I visited the cemetery travelling by tube to Kensal Green (Bakerloo). The entrance gates were about a 10 minute walk if exiting the station and turning left. There was a notice on the entrance saying the grass had grown and although attempts were being made...More

Walk here from Little Venice along the Grand Union Canal, then stroll through an atmospheric. peaceful graveyard. Unfortunately you won't find the graves of the celebrities buried here unless you stumble upon them by accident. What a pity there's no leaflet available or a plan...More

We visited in the evening as part of the excellent Month of the Dead. We started with hot gin cocktails and a story in the crypt and then had a torch lit walk through the graves. This really is a city of the dead, full...More

An interesting and haunting glimpse into the past as you walk amongst the tombstones. What stories this place could tell.

Come here for a peaceful stroll on my lunch breaks during the summer months. Truly lovely in the sunshine, and not at all morbid. There are some interesting tombs and gravestones but more than anything it's just a nice way to kill an hour, away...More

When I lived in London in the '90s I enjoyed visiting Highgate and Brompton Cemeteries occasionally. These are two of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries, which were built in the 1830s in response to a massive influx of population to London in the early 19th century...More

This is a great place for a walk but you need several hours to do it justice. It is the oldest of the Magnificent Seven Victorian cemeteries surrounding London. It's also been a conservation area since 1984. There is an interesting mix of graves for...More

Spent a good hour walking around here with my partner as I'm into the more macabre of activities. Found it highly interesting if you like that sort of stuff. Super fascinating and weirdly relaxing as we wandered around the memorials and gravestones. I recommend this...More

We regularly come here with our family for a stroll. It is absolutely huge, somewhat run down in parts, but absolutely fascinating. The graves vary from the very simple to huge, house-sized constructions. Looking at the names, you regularly stumble (sometimes quite literally) on someone...More

I knew the cemetery slightly before I took the tour, but the tour guides brought (pardon the pun) the whole place to life. Well worth a visit. More than good value for money - but it was nice that the low price attracted a good...More
