This is an absolutely magical spot in London. No longer used as a cemetery it has a real forgotten feel to it with hundreds of old, overgrown headstones. Now a nature reserve it's a beautiful, quiet space for a walk and there are also several spots where you can get great views across to the City.

Amazing little spot in Nunhead that’s a perfect diversion on a walk or place to explore on its own. No new bodies have been laid to rest here for decades so its very quiet with lots of very old gravestones, some quite spooky. All up hill at the end you get the amazing treat of a clear view over London and a little bench to sit on to do so. I could spend ages here, its glorious!

There is a fate run by the vicar here every summer and its super fun, very touching community atmosphere and not infiltrated by too much of the young crowd- just a good balance!
