Welcome to Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park

Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park offers everyone a breathing space in the heart of East London. This woodland cemetery is a unique place of transformation: a people's cemetery, a place for remembrance, a sanctuary for humans as well as nature, a place for festivals, field studies and forest schools. Always changing with the seasons, it is rooted in the history of the East End, a place of rich heritage that is full of possibilities and freedom for all.

Light in the dark

Our many bat walks this year were well attended as we always expect them to be with crowds in excess of 30 people every event. Lighting our way, and keeping track of the group as weave along the paths searching out bats as they hunt for insects can be a bit tricky with no lights on site.  This year though we had no problems as the great folk at National Pen kindly donated to us a whole bunch of colourful branded LED keyring torches. Thank you, National Pen we love 'em and they'll help us out for years to come!

Funding success!

Big thanks to the LBTH & especially Cllr. Khales for his generous donation to us. Thanks to fellow participant charities for helping to raise £10,725 to go towards our work @APASENTH @bbpi100 @soulfc. We feel very proud and honoured to be one of Cllr. Khales chosen charities and to have raised so much.
