Highgate cemetery


I’m sure this could be strangest blog post yet but I just had to share my favourite cemetery with you ( yes I have a favourite cemetery and yes I know that’s a little weird). But after seeing this you might have a favourite cemetery too, it’s near impossible not to fall in love with the beauty and history of Highgate cemetery.


A few years ago I read Her fearful symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger which is a beautiful book based around Highgate and its cemetery, I loved the book so much that within a month of finishing it I booked a train and before I knew it I was on a guided tour of the cemetery and this is now my fourth visit. Opened in 1839 and is the final resting place for thousands of souls, the cemetery is now split into east and west. With the west side only accessible by guided tour as it can be rather dangerous.


The rest of this post is purely pictures as I don’t want to bore you with hundreds of details and facts but I will bore you with way too many pictures but please stick with it because Highgate cemetery truly is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. If you are interested one details and facts you can read more about Highgate cemetery here, it’s definitely worth a read as its truly fascinating.
