All Hallow's lantern-lit Tours by Cemetery Club
Guided tours of up to 30 people may take place indoors or outdoors provided businesses undertake risk assessments in line with this guidance document and put any necessary mitigations in place.
Follow a lantern-lit tour amongst the tombs of the East End's famous and infamous dead!
This Halloween, long gone lives are waiting to be rediscovered in Mile End. Ranging from opium den owners, animal importers and music hall stars: these are just some of the remarkable characters who are going to be brought back to life by Sheldon and Sacha of the Cemetery Club.
You'll receive a personal introduction to some of the 350,000 remarkable people who lie beneath the ground in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park - join them for a night to remember as we turn back time and bring the old East End and its old characters back to life.
With a choice of times, the tours will start at the War memorial, by the Soanes Centre. Please wear suitable footwear and wrap up warm: All Hallows Eve can be chilly!
