Away from the hustle of Brompton Road and Earls Court, behind a crumbling stone wall, under the linden trees, is an historic burial ground, well worth a visit. Time seems to stand still here in this place of eternal rest - but you'll discover the...More

It's incredible how lost you can get looking at this place, to don't mention walking among those historical stones. This cemetery hold many history and can transmit different feeling. It's anyway a good spot to stop and enjoy the quiet atmosphere or just to walk...More

It's quite stunning in its own crumbling way, both incredibly thought provoking with the designs of tombs and history as well as sad that ultimately we will all run out of people to tend of people to tend the graves. If you want a quiet...More

Well maintained graveyard with many interesting features. We’d be really interested in having a tour of the catacombs if that’s ever available but we loved walking around anyway.

Simply taking a walk in this cemetery is interesting. Many famous and important people buried here. Great peaceful walk from Brompton to Fulham. We came specifically for catacombs tour. £5 for a half hour peruse. Spooky but interesting.

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

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.
