Highgate Cemetery

Most Fashionable Place of Rest for Victorian Society


Highgate Cemetery in north London opened in 1839 and is the final resting place of many famous names such as Karl Marx, Malcolm McLaren and Jeremy Beadle.

The cemetery is on both sides of Swain's Lane in Highgate, N6 (directions). The East Cemetery is open daily and you can visit for a small fee. A map is available showing graves of particular interest. This is side where you can see Karl Marx. To visit the West Cemetery you must join a tour, organized by the Friends of Highgate Cemetery, as the ground is unsafe in many places. The tour fees go towards the upkeep and repairs on site. (See latest tours information.)
