Where: across London
While spending a month of weekends visiting cemeteries might seem like an ever so slightly maudlin way to enjoy your personal time, we can assure you that the satisfaction gained from completing the task will be more than worth it. Also, this is really no task at all, because London’s Magnificent Seven Cemeteries aren’t just the resting places of the dead, they are some of the most beautiful green spaces in the whole of London.
The Seven include Kensal Green Cemetery, West Norwood Cemetery, Highgate Cemetery, Abney Park Cemetery, Nunhead Cemetery, Brompton Cemetery and Tower Hamlets Cemetery, giving you cause to crisscross over London to witness their Victorian splendor.
A free month of historic, nature-filled outdoor activity? You’d have to already have one foot in the grave not to embrace this challenge.
