Kensal Green Cemetery

Magnificent 7

Description

One of the Magnificent 7 cemeteries in Kensal Green, West London. Inspired by the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. Opened in 1833, includes 2 conservation areas, adjoining a canal. The cemetery has a host of different memorials ranging from large mausoleums housing the rich and famous to many distinctive smaller graves. Despite its Grecian-style buildings the cemetery is primarily Gothic in character due to the high number of private Gothic monuments. Due to this atmosphere, the cemetery was used in many movies. Free entry. Open 9am (10am Sunday) to 5pm (winter) / 6pm (summer)
