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.
To help safeguard our valuable populations of wild plants in the Cemetery park there is a need to control foraging activities and so restrictions are being applied to foraging in the Cemetery Park.
Collecting for commercial
purposes is not allowed anywhere in the Cemetery Park unless agreed in writing
with the Cemetery Park Manager.
You are welcome to forage for your own consumption but this is by permission only with an allowance of up to 0.25kg for personal use.
Please help us to minimise damage and conserve these valuable elements of the Cemetery Park by not over picking and picking away from footpaths edges.
You can get in touch with us via email and telephone, Monday to Friday during office hours.

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.
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.
