  • A seemingly random disarray of mausolea,crypts,tombs,monuments, sarcophagi, tombs and fresh graves conflating eras. Here the High and mighty, the renowned and distinguished, the forgotten and the humble are interred, often at arms length, cheek by jowl; patently a cosmopolitan companionship. Redolent of Victorian Gothic and evoking both pathos and hubris. Unfeigned and affecting. " all who have died are equal " * * Comanche proverb.
  • A lovely nature reserve that only adds to the eeriness of a graveyard. Purposefully left to overgrow and flower. I think it's wonderful.
  • Interesting atmosphere and variety of graves and mausoleums. A peaceful place to come explore.
  • My family are buried here you always get a cheery wave from attendants as you drive in they keep the place beautifully and its always a pleasure to visit
  • A veritable 'who's who' of Victorian society. Some of the overgrown parts of the cemetery are nice during summer - very verdant!

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.
