What could be more appropriate for Halloween than spending time inside a house of the dead — inside a Mausoleum? And not just any Mausoleum, but one that is famous for its unusual decoration and the fact that you can go inside.

This is the Kilmorey Mausoleum, and on All Hallows Eve, you will be able to go inside the Victorian neo-Egyptian temple and hear about the illustrious history of its creator and occupant, Francis Jack Needham, 2nd Earl of Kilmorey and Priscilla Hoste.

The mausoleum will also be illuminated from the outside, making for excellent photographs.

Tours take place every 30 minutes on Tuesday 31st October starting at 6:30pm and finishing at 9:30pm. All tours must be booked in advance from here.

Tickets are £6 per person and free for under 7 year olds.

The entrance gate is on St. Margarets Road, TW1 1PR, in a brick wall opposite the Ailsa Tavern Pub.

The Kilmorey Mausoleum is about a 10 minute walk from St Margarets station served by South Western Railway, or about 20 minutes walk from Richmond station (Overground/District lines) via the Richmond Lock footbridge across the Thames.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
