Highgate Cemetery by architects Stephen Geary & Bunstead Bunning, built 1839 on the site of 17th century Ashurst House. It has over 52,000 graves, many of famous people.

These occupants are brought to life by the very informative and entertaining guided tours through the West Cemetery which must be booked in advance. Visitors can stroll through the East side on their own seeing, amongst others, the grave of Karl Marx.

Derelict by 1975, it was acquired in 1981 by the Friends of Highgate Cemetery and is now a working cemetery and a major tourist attraction.
