Highgate Cemetery

Highgate Cemetery first opened in 1839 and was originally run by a private company until the mid-1970s. After falling into a state of disrepair, the illustrious resting place was taken over by the Friends of Highgate Cemetery, who have worked ever since to restore the grounds to its former state.

Its land is listed as Grade I and is divided into East and West sections, where there are almost 200,000 people buried. This includes notable names such as authors Douglas Adams and George Eliot, music impresario Malcolm McLaren and German philosopher Karl Marx. Pop star George Michael is also buried on the grounds, although access is not permitted to the general public.
