Public Notices   Brompton Cemetery is open but there are some changes due to Covid. Please for the latest information.


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.

We are the charity for London's eight amazing Royal Parks

We care for each of London's Royal Parks for everyone now and in the future to explore, value and enjoy.

Covering over 5,000 acres of historic parkland, the parks provide beautiful green spaces right in the heart of the capital where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the city. They're a place for you to relax and unwind, exercise and clear your mind. If it's history and architecture you're after, we have hundreds of buildings, statues and memorials, giving a fascinating insight into London's heritage.

A statement on public memorials

The Royal Parks cares for a large number of statues and memorials which mark historical figures and events. All of these are on public display in our parks and open spaces. We believe that we should provide fair and balanced information about the individuals and events that are being commemorated and set out the context in which the memorials were erected.

Given the understandable concern about memorials, particularly those that are considered to celebrate figures who supported and profited from slavery, we will be undertaking a review of the major memorials in our care. This will include looking at the interpretation and information we provide to ensure that we do not provide a sanitised or one-sided view of history.

Our organisation seeks to support equality, diversity and inclusion in all of its work and continues to do all it can to achieve this.
