Walking Tour - The Secret Pet Cemetery of Hyde Park
Saturday 21st Oct 2017
11:00 am - 12:00 pm
This is a special opportunity to visit the Victorian Pet Cemetery in Hyde Park, which is rarely open to the public.
The cemetery dates back to the 1880s and contains the remains of over 300 animals, many in graves marked by tiny headstones. This quiet corner of Hyde Park is a touching reminder of the special relationship that can exist between animals and humans.
The one hour walk takes in Tyburn - where thousands of people were executed over the centuries - and also visits Speakers' Corner, Reformer’s Tree and other gloomy stories that bring to life Hyde Park's dark heritage.
