A really amazing and atmospheric cemetery park. Reading the headstones that date back so far gives a real insight into bygone days. Some would have been truly heart breaking for those involved where you can see the fragility of life in Victorian times. This is contrasted by the opulence of those gravesend of the wealthy. Ultimately now laying side by side in the same sod.

Love this place. Ideal for a quiet wander through the trails. Find it with the 3 word address ///bumpy.twig.glitz

Avoid this place, it’s in the middle of London’s most roughest area and not secure! Which should have been a nice walk, was cut short as people were telling us they have been just robbed on one of the paths. The park personnel was saying that it is unfortunate but can happen... Go to Greenwich Park, it is much nicer or of you want to visit a graveyard, try Nunhead in the south or Highgate in the north.

Unsafe area. Someone got his wallet and mobile phone robbed. Better old-style cemeteries in London (Highgate, Nunhead)
