Welcome to Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park

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 Conservation.

Foraging in THCP - 02.05.17

With nature literally hurling her gifts at us it can be a very busy time for foragers.  We welcome responsible, considerate foragers collecting for personal use only.

Bylaws prevent foraging in the Cemetery Park.  Commercial foraging is forbidden; foraging for personal use is by permission only.

We ask visitors to forage sustainably and responsibly, and please make sure you stay safe and within the law. If in doubt, please get in touch.

We also ask foragers to adhere to the guidelines produced by the Woodland Trust. Click here.
