Today I needs must be brief as I’m about to dash off to meet out-of-town visitors at Highgate Cemetery! I’m excited about this one, as it’s been on my London bucketlist for a while. I’ve mentioned before my habit of strolling through Brompton Cemetery, so I already have an innate morbid fascination with cemeteries to begin with; however, what brings the less morose to this “attraction” are the notable dead forever slumbering beneath its surface—Karl Marx and the poet Christina Rossetti being among them. Likely out of reverence for the cemetery’s permanent residents given its appeal to tourism, the site charges admission for entry. The East Cemetery costs £3 per person, and the West Cemetery can only be viewed via guided tour at £7 per person (see website for the seasonal schedule).
