Serene and tranquil
Jan 2020
Had a lovely walk on a crispy January winters day. It was serene, peaceful and gave us a chance to see some lovely stones. It's so quiet, you'd never say its in the heart of Stoke Newington! Will go back in the summer again.

If you want to find some peace and solitude in London for reflection this is the place. Left a bit to nature it has a lovely peaceful atmosphere and I could quite happily waste a few hours here.

An excellent place to relax!
Nov 2019
Initial reason to visit was to view my grandparents grave. Location is now considered by many as a Nature Reserve, but a relaxing and thoughtful area for the mind. Amazing current local residents, either just walking with their thoughts, with children or canines. All keen to enter conversation.

The most beautiful and tranquil place
Nov 2019 • Solo
You can come here a million times and find something new to look at each time. It really is beautiful, so beautiful that I paid to have my old dearly departed dogs buried here. They say there are over 3 million people buried there....the fact that the place is both cared for and yet given over to nature makes that poignant. They are not forgotten and truly have gone back to whence they came. I love to meander with my dog....I say the names I pass out loud as it may be such a long time since someone mentioned them aloud.... It makes me feel very calm and my dog loves it there. It is their place.... It is our place.... It is your place....It's a place of honour.... You will love it

Great place for walks
Apr 2019
Went there for a walk in spring morning, it was amazing. Many little paths, I like the overgrown park style, plus the old gravestones give nice historic feel to it, as it's one of the original 7 London cemeteries.I know they do some events and workshops as well, but haven't been to any.

Interesting gothic cemetery, rejuvenated

This place is moody. It’s beautiful in an edgy way. It’s adjacent to Stoke Newington Church Street and well worth a little detour to ponder on the gothic.

A TRANQUIL OASIS IN NORTH LONDON.
Sep 2019
A very interesting CEMETARY ..once overgrown it is now gentrified. But It seems to of lost its heart and soul..Once popular with cruising gay men and alcoholics, it is now family friendly and
perfect for walking your dog. ..

I can't help thinking it WON'T be long before a cafe appears in courtyard..
