Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park offers everyone a breathing space in the heart of East London. This woodland cemetery is a unique place of transformation: a people's cemetery, a place for remembrance, a sanctuary for humans as well as nature, a place for festivals, field studies and forest schools. Always changing with the seasons, it is rooted in the history of the East End, a place of rich heritage that is full of possibilities and freedom for all.

The cemetery is always so peaceful and perfect, resembling something out of s film set but right in the heart of busy Bow. Overgrown in places and enchanting. You could be anywhere. Some great photo opportunities always present themselves, especially in winter. A real idyll.

A delightful place to spend a couple of hours wandering about or sitting on a bench in the sun. It just needs better signposting - I'm sure this could be done sensitively.

Every time we visit our daughter in Bow, we come for a walk in Tower Hamlets Cemetery. Wild, overgrown, but managed, it achieves a great balance between being out of control and manicured. It is lovely walking along the paths at any time of year...More

We live in the area and use the place regularly, almost daily in the summer. Wish they'd stop chopping bits of it down. Not sure it needs all the tidying up. Agree it's great to make it accessible for schools and activities etc but feel...More

Great place to discover a hidden side of London's history unknown to many visitors and as ''peaceful'' as you'd expect.
