Do you happen to visit graveyards when you are exploring a new place?
If not, it is something you should do. I know it may sound creepy but it isn’t, trust me.
Some cities, London for instance, host beautiful and full of atmosphere cemeteries.
Therefore I couldn’t help but bring you to Highgate Cemetery, in North London.
Once there, you can visit both East and West sides. Nevertheless while you can always take a stroll in the East cemetery (the entrance is 4£), you have to book a guided tour in order to visit the West side.
That’s the reason why you will only see pictures of the Eastern part: my friends and I could not book the guided tour since tickets were sold out.
The beauty of the Highgate Cemetery is in its atmosphere: ancient graves surrounded by an apparently wild nature.
One of the most famous figures of the East Cemetery is Karl Marx.
His friend Engels purchased the grave, which wasn’t initially situated in the centre of the cemetery.
In 1956 the Marx Memorial Fund purchased a new grave, easily recognisable from the enormous monument of the philosopher.
