Description

In the morning we explore historic Highgate Village with qualified London Blue Badge Guide and Historian Diane Burstein to hear about some interesting inhabitants past and present. Stroll through Waterlow Park and view Lauderdale House where Charles II is reputed to have left Nell Gwynn, view a famous public school, discover where Coleridge purchased his opium and see the road which has played host to pop stars, writers, models and a famous classical musician. After a break for lunch in an area with a good choice of eating places we take a short walk to Highgate Cemetery for a tour with a Cemetery guide. Opened in 1839 the Cemetery is the resting place of numerous notable people from Karl Marx and George Eliot to Malcolm McLaren and Alexander Litvinenko. The tour will concentrate on the West Cemetery which includes the Chapel, Colonnade, Egyptian Avenue, Circle of Lebanon, Terrace and Catacombs. Cost includes full guided walking tour and cemetery tour. The tours take place in all weathers.
