  • I quite liked this place, although there isn't a whole lot to see. Check ahead for when it is open so that you can walk inside, as the hours are limited. They are currently doing some landscape work a...  more »

  • An oasis of calm in a busy city. The perfect place to get to grips with the grim and dirty past of London and understand who are the real villains in the plot. I was honoured to be part of a private c...  more »

  • This is a beautiful, peaceful haven just off the beaten track, a great way to while away an hour in the afternoon. I really respect the effort that has gone into maintaining this historical site and educating people about it.
  • This colorful, but haunting garden stands at the site of a pauper's grave, where many prostitutes -- known as the "Winchester Geese" -- found their final resting place. It is guarded by a ribbon-covered gate that serves as a memorial to the women buried there, to the lovingly remembered and to the sadly forgotten. As Southwark becomes brightier and shinier by the day, Crossbones is a poignant reminder of the borough's long and gritty history.
  • One of London's most unique locations - originally a graveyard for 'fallen woman', it is a festive riotous memorial to those in society who have slipped through the cracks. Leave a token for someone you've lost.
  • Interesting historical spot. Well worth a visit if you enjoy London's history. Close by to Borough Market
  • A very interesting side landmark that left me a bit haunted.
