We went as a family group as part of a ghost tour, very atmospheric just next to a railway bridge. Apparently the tube drivers don't like driving the line next to it as they have seen apparitions of pauper children buried here. Plenty of history attached to this site and the mementoes attached to the fence make you feel very emotional. Glad I went, take something to tie to the fence....if you want to be part of the rememberence.

We found the site by accident while looking for the borough market. The gates are very beautifully decorated. This site has much social significance and should be kept with the remaining bones untouched. We hope to attend a vigil one day.

Crossbones Graveyard is a post-mediaeval unconsecrated paupers burial ground, now a famous 'people's shrine'. Over the years people have tied at the gates many ribbons and things of beauty. Friends of Crossbones gather at the gates on the 23rd of every month to renew the shrine and tie more mementoes. There is also a campaign to help protect this space and in future to create a public park here. More details and petition on the website.
Enjoy your visit!
