As I sat down to kick off our tour of London’s seven most famous and peaceful cemeteries, collectively known as The Magnificent Seven, I kept wondering how I would post each of them.
I thought about it for a bit and decided that I’d just go and do both. These places are too interesting to relegate them to a short gallery and too beautiful to not capture in as many pictures as possible.
Once I have visited all seven, I’ll then sit down and do a roundup article on everything.
Right! Enough of that. Let’s do this.
To start off I went with the most famous cemetery of them all: Highgate Cemetery… Well, Highgate East Cemetery:
As gloomy and nasteh as it sounds, I actually really enjoyed my visit to Highgate’s eastern cemetery. I didn’t have to go with a tour (like you do with the West Cemetery) and was able to go at my own pace and shoot what I wanted to shoot.
The entrance fee is £4 for adults and free for children and teenagers under 18.
Here’s the accompanying Parks, Gardens & Cemeteries post for Highgate Cemetery.
