Brompton Cemetery

Brompton Cemetery is in Earls Court. It is managed by the Royal Parks and is one of the Magnificent Seven London cemeteries. Opened in 1840 it is a large expanse of land that has tombstones dating back to this period. Many of the tombs are family mausoleums of particularly ornate design.

This garden cemetery is one of Britain's oldest. Within the graveyard there are some fine buildings and landscaping and on a hot summers day this is actually a peaceful and serene place to visit. Walking along the wide avenues you can forget that you are actually  in the heart of London.
