  • 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.
