This is a small but beautiful burial ground with monuments to some notable people from the past. It is not possible to walk around between the graves to see a particular monument are the graves a behind metal railings.
There are areas to relax and reflect.

As a taphophile, this cemetery has been on my list for a while. So glad I got to have a wander around today!
I love that they have turned a lot of it into wildlife havens. There was so much bird chatter and it felt very peaceful amongst hustle and bustle of London.
Lots of beautiful grave markers to admire and so much history to this little area.

Small burial grounds in the City but with several notable internments. A quiet place to relax and very leafy in Spring 👍🏼.

Some big names buried here, as well as some lesser known and unknown ones. A nice, quiet space in the city. Would be good to do the guided walk on another visit.

Bunhill Fields comprises 1.6 hectares of burial ground next to the Artillery Company headquarters in City Road within the London Borough of Islington but owned and run by the City of London Corporation. It is the final resting place for upwards of 120,000 bodies and is best known for its Nonconformist associations, including William Blake, Daniel Defoe, John Bunyan and Susannah Wesley. There are 75 listed tombs. Its current layout with paths and tres dates from the 1860s. A public garden designed by Peter Shepheard was laid out in its northern half in the 1960s.

A cemetery much visited by tourists and Londoners who come here just for lunch. The squirrels that populate it are curious and friendly.

Closed to interments for a century and more after in excess of 120,000 burials, now raised to Grade 1 Park status and well looked after and most important radicals. We came because of the comparatively new memorial stone to William Blake, a simple but entirely fitting marker of the great man.

Bunhill Fields is a traditional burial ground in the heart of London's east end. Among others it is the last resting place of John Bunyan, William Blake and Daniel Dafoe. It lies on City Road, directly opposite the Wesley Capel. Well worth a visit. L

The burial place of William Blake and his beloved Catherine Blake, née Boucher: a fairly well maintained garden, with benches and tall trees. You can sit and think and rehears his poetry among people reading, having their lunch or just resting.

One of the beauties of London is being surprised at what may be around the corner. Here it is - a slice of 18th Century antiquity beside the ground of the Honourable Artillery Company HQ in City Road. Wesley and Bunyan are buried here and would be an astonishing place to visit very early on a cold November day.
