Public notice: Joggers coming to the cemetery for their daily exercise must stick to the main avenue and stay off of the paths on either side of the cemetery, which are too narrow to stay a safe 2m+ from other visitors. Exercise alone or with one other person from your household.

These are rules, not requests. Please work together to keep the cemetery open for everyone who needs it.

Please ensure you check our updates page for the very latest information about park closures and access to facilities.

The Grade I listed Brompton Cemetery is the well-loved resting place of over 200,000 people, a haven for wildlife and a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.

Nestled among the spectacular trees and undergrowth are over 35,000 gravestones and monuments. The cemetery is alive with the amazing stories of all the people buried there since the 1830s, including some well-known names like Emmeline Pankhurst and John Snow.

Whether you want to learn about Brompton’s rich history, go for a stroll, grab a cup of coffee or just sit in quiet contemplation, Brompton Cemetery is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of West London.

Did you know?

A recently completed restoration project, part funded by the National Lottery Heritage and Community funds, returned the spectacular chapel to its original glory. A new café and visitors centre by the North Lodge and an exciting calendar of events has made Brompton one of the most unique cemeteries in London.
