Brompton Cemetery is near Earl's Court tube and is pleasant for a walk and a bit of peace in a very busy area. Well maintained with mostly Victorian graves.

We passed through this old cemetery on our way from Earl's Court to Chelsea. I always loved British Cemetery and the way the local people live them. There were people running, cycling, strolling with a dog.

We took a stroll through the cemetery since it was a short walk from our hotel. It was everything I would imagine a London cemetery would be. Peaceful, historical, a bit creepy with the fog and magnificent all rolled into one. There were abundant birds and it was very clean and seemed safe. We encountered many people jogging, walking dogs... More

I have visited Brompton in throughout the season from the high summer of the Open Day to the bright, fiery colours of Autumn. The walk through its 35,000 memorials from the West Brompton end to the busy Fulham Road entrance at the other is one of the highlights of strolling in central London. But you won’t be alone, unless you... More

A fabulous third visit to this place. Atmospheric, creepy but still amazing and I love that Beatrix Potter may have picked her characters names from this place.

Visited for a lecture during London Month of the Dead. Surreal to exit cemetery chapel to the sight of Chelsea football fans taking a short cut to the game! The chapel needs some investment but is very striking. The cemetery has several interesting graves including Mrs Pankhurst and John Snow of saving London from cholera not Game of Thrones fame....

I visited the cemetery as part of London Death Month (do check it out next year) and it is gorgeous. It's very peaceful, with beautiful tombs and catacombs. It's so vast that a couple of hours is needed to do it justice. If visiting in the colder months wrap up warm and enjoy the calm.

Brompton Cemetery is well worth visiting. It's not geographically interesting (it's in a flat part of West Kensington/Chelsea) but it's an atmospheric Victorian cemetery that also serves as a park and a thoroughfare for walkers and cyclists moving around this part of town. It was built as one of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries during the Victorian era when London ran... More
