Walk in the woods, quiet and full of history and memories, a must if you're in the area. There's even a perfectly framed view of St Paul's.

A beautiful and peaceful cemetery. The Friends of Nunhead Cemetery give an excellent free tour (check their site for details). Very interesting and informative. Such a beautiful place!

Beautiful old cemetery to walk around and have some quiet contemplation. I recently watched a film here too during the Nunhead free film festival, was a great evening.

Such a great few hours learning about the history of our city through the tour of the graves of the musical artists here at Nunhead. The tales involved rags to riches to rags again; murder and accidental deaths. All good. 12 year old son enthralled....More
