Laid out in 1840, and with picturesque Victorian catacombs to view, this cemetery holds around 200,000 tombs. Among them are those of Sir Henry Cole (responsible for the 1851 Great Exhibition and the Victoria & Albert Museum), suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst and writer George Borrow. You can also enjoy poetry readings and even picnics at the graveyard, all organized by Friends of Brompton Cemetery.
