Favorite thing: Highgate Cemetery

There are mausoleums, catacombs and ornate crumbling tombs of eminent writers, politicians and artists in the rambling, overgrown west section of this woodland graveyard. Celebrity corpses include Karl Marx, Michael Faraday and Christina Rossetti. Be aware that you must purchase a photography license (£2) in order to take photographs within the cemetery.

Opening hours below are from April-October. Times are 10am-4pm daily from November-March.

Admission: guided tours cost £2-£3
