Commune with Karl Marx at Highgate Cemetary

The Time Out team has compiled a list of 101 ultimate things to do in London; each week we’ll highlight one as inspiration for your weekend adventures. Make the most of the fine weather and see some of London’s finest romantic ruins at Highgate Cemetery, the resting place for the likes of Karl Marx, Christina Rossetti and Mary Ann Evans (aka George Eliot). The atmospheric Grade 1 Victorian burial ground, which is divided into East and West cemeteries, is home to ivy-covered corners, broken pillars, crooked urns and mysterious paths straight from a gothic novel, and they offer tours to discover the cemetery’s best kept secrets.
