The Friends of Tower
Hamlets Cemetery Park are a registered charity who look after the
beautiful and atmospheric Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, on behalf of the London
Borough of Tower Hamlets. The Cemetery
Park is London’s most urban woodland, and Tower Hamlets’ only woodland park. It is historically important, being one of London’s Magnificent
Seven Cemeteries, closing to burials and becoming a public
park in 1966. This site supports an incredible variety of species and is a
Local Nature Reserve and Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature
We are excited to share our new self-guided Heritage trail which was launched at London Open House weekend. The trail brings to life the stories of people buried here and the architecture of the memorials which commemorate them.
Pick up a leaflet on site and follow the purple and gold metal waymarkers to learn more about the fascinating history of the Cemetery. More info.
