Even though that I stay in the Archway area of London every time I visit, I’ve not previously noticed that Highgate Cemetery is just around the corner, despite there being a big sign with directions in Archway tube station.
There’s a bunch of famous folk in the ground at Highgate Cemetery. Proper famous, too; not just telly presenters and models. There’s Karl Marx, Douglas Adams, Sir Ralph Richardson, Max Wall, Mary Ann Evans (George Eliot), and Herbert Spencer amongst others.
It’s a very beautiful place. Well worth the three quid entrance fee. Here’s some photographs.
