Event description

Description

Brompton Cemetery, which opened in 1840 and covers 40 acres (16H), is one of the so-called Magnificent Seven Cemeteries of London. It contains over 206,000 burials and is listed Grade I in the Historic England’s Register of Parks and Gardens. It is also a Conservation Area and a designated site of nature conservation interest. It contains what is probably the country’s finest architectural funerary complex and uniquely it is a nationalised cemetery and run by the Royal Parks. A major refurbishment of £6.2M, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, was completed in 2018. The aim of its Victorian designers was to create a garden cemetery that would be a serene and uplifting experience for visitors and this still holds true.

Our tour, which includes the catacomb, will be led by Robert Stevenson, the leading London cemetery expert and qualified City of London Guide.
