Highgate Cemetery has some of the finest funerary architecture in the country. It is a place of peace and contemplation where a romantic profusion of trees, memorials and wildlife flourish.
With over 170,000 people in 53,000 graves, Highgate Cemetery is a place to remember the people who have gone before us and to celebrate their achievements.
The most famous resident of Highgate Cemetery East is Karl Marx, whose monument attracts comrades and others from all over the world.
Nowhere captures better than Highgate Cemetery West the special atmosphere of the Victorian cemetery. Visit by guided tour only.
