Take a walk through a magnificent cemetery

Rich with wildlife - a treat for nature-lovers
This must try is connected to: Abney Park

Abney Park is known as one of London's 'magnificent seven' cemeteries, built in the 19th century forming a ring around what was then the capital's border. This graveyard, located in Stoke Newington, is particularly noteworthy because it was the first non-denominational cemetery to open in Europe.


It was designated a nature reserve in 1993 due to its rich wildlife, and is known among nature-lovers for its trees - which were laid out in 1840 as an arboretum, much of which remains.
