I found this place fascinating to wander around. We were lucky enough to have time for a second visit when the catacombs were open for tours. Our guide was very informative and it was great to have this insight into English history.

We went for a walk through this beautiful cemetery since was very close to our hotel. I love reading the tombstones, memorial quotes and epitaphs... everything I would have imagined in a London cemetery!! Perfect for walks

Brompton Cemetery is near Earl's Court tube and is pleasant for a walk and a bit of peace in a very busy area. Well maintained with mostly Victorian graves.

We passed through this old cemetery on our way from Earl's Court to Chelsea. I always loved British Cemetery and the way the local people live them. There were people running, cycling, strolling with a dog.

I have visited Brompton in throughout the season from the high summer of the Open Day to the bright, fiery colours of Autumn. The walk through its 35,000 memorials from the West Brompton end to the busy Fulham Road entrance at the other is one...More

A fabulous third visit to this place. Atmospheric, creepy but still amazing and I love that Beatrix Potter may have picked her characters names from this place.

Visited for a lecture during London Month of the Dead. Surreal to exit cemetery chapel to the sight of Chelsea football fans taking a short cut to the game! The chapel needs some investment but is very striking. The cemetery has several interesting graves including...More

Can I visit the cemetery without taking a tour? Is there an admission fee?

There is no fee to pay to walk around the cemetery. It is unusual in that it is both a place for burials and a public park.

If I only have time for 1 cemetery should it be Brompton or Highgate? I am staying near Victoria Station in early April. Thank you, Nancy
