Walked to Nunhead Cemetery from Crystal Palace following one of the Green Chain London walks. Nunhead Cemetry was the final destination. Could easily have spent longer exploring all the paths and monuments as I believe the whole site covers about 52 acres.

Nunhead Cemetery in Southwark was the sixth of the 'Magnificent Seven' cemeteries. Consecrated in 1840 and, although there is an area of modern graves, much of the cemetery is today more of a wildlife reserve dotted with gravestones. At its heart is the Gothic Anglican Chapel, now ruined after an arson attack in the 1970's. There are a number of interesting monuments which have been conserved - including the monument to the Scottish Martyrs - a partner to the larger one on Calton Hill in Edinburgh. The Martyrs were five men - two from Scotland and three from London who were sentenced to penal transportation because of their campaign for parliamentary reform. There are several war graves from those who died in the two world wars, with many from Belgium in the First World war and countries such as Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Canada in the Second, and a monument to nine Sea Scouts who died in the Leysdown Tragedy off the Isle of Sheppey in 1912. Enjoyable to visit and explore and a green natural space for people to enjoy

Easy enough to find with Google maps. There is free parking at both ends of the cemetery. It has a lot of character as parts of it are overgrown with much to see and discover. Popular with walkers and dog walkers alike.

Went as part of the London Wildlife Trust bat walks. Saw a few pippistrelles and learnt a lot. The cemetery itself is free to enter during the day (just 10 minute walk from Nunhead station) and is very pleasant. It's not too eerie but has some interesting gothic buildings and plenty of places to get some peace and quiet.
