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.
