Highgate Cemetery promised burial in a sepulchral garden, so attractive that it would be a good place for a day out. It was so popular that ways had to be found to limit the number of visitors on Sundays, and it was enormously successful as a burial ground.

Drawing from the collections of the Camden Local Studies and Archives Centre and Highgate Cemetery’s own archive, and supplemented by images from other collections, this exhibition attempts to recapture how the Victorians would have seen Highgate Cemetery.
