Brompton Cemetery, London

4.5
With ornate Victorian sculptures, sprawling trees, and well-maintained walking lanes, it can be easy to forget that Brompton Cemetery serves primarily as a burial ground. Part of London's Magnificent Seven--a group of cemeteries established in the mid-19th century to alleviate overcrowding on the grounds of city churches--this cemetery today is a recreational space under management of The Royal Parks. The garden scenery has earned the cemetery cameos in numerous films, and you're likely to encounter numerous locals enjoying it on a stroll or bike ride. To learn more about the cemetery's history, consider taking a Sunday-afternoon tour offered by The Friends of Brompton Cemetery, a local organization that helps maintain the 16 hectare (39 acre) grounds.

  • This is the place whenever I visit London be sure to take a walk. Excellant location. The peace. Cultural. It is time very luxurious walk relax while admiring a beautiful sculpture is surrounded by natural way without the hustle and bustle of London. Good luck and you can come across a Fox too. West Brompton station is preferred, but can be reached in a 15-minute walk from Gloucester Road tube station and Earls Court tube station.

  • Other guests very quiet, keep themselves to themselves - no rent, would definitely choose to be dead here again, would recommend !
  • Old and partly overgrown (on purpose) cemetery. Although not a real tourist attraction, it's a nice detour and I enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and plenty of photo opportunities.
  • Watch out for the victorian time machine. A lovely cemetery with many interesting graves. I'd love to be able to get into some of the underground chambers/tombs. Very relaxing place
  • Very interesting place to visit and did not know it was a Royal Park. Nice place to walk around and sometimes take my lunch break there as so peaceful.
  • Don't miss the visit of this amazing place in London. If you are Lucky, you could see a couple of red foxes running around the tombs... Enjoy your visit

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
