  • This location is shown only to members

Come along on Saturday 23rd November for a visit to Brompton Cemetery!

About the Cemetery

Brompton Cemetery opened in 1840 and is regarded as one of the finest Victorian Metropolitan cemeteries in the country and it's layout is based on St Peter's Basilica in Rome. 

It has over 35,000 monuments - many of historical importance.  Famous occupants include; Emmeline Pankhurst (suffragette), William Edward Ayrton (physicist) and Henry Cole (founder of the V&A, the Royal Albert Hall and inventor of the Christmas Card).

The cemetery has fantastic architecture and a great time to visit it is in the Autumn.  It has also featured in lots of films and T.V programmes.

When you arrive, we will split you into small groups to explore the cemetery together with maps.  Entry is free.

Afterwards, we will head to The Prince of Wales pub, 14 Lillie Road for a chat over a drink.

Lookout for the group sign when you come out of the station:

Look forward to seeing you there.

    Wonderful, if chilly, walk around a beautiful part of London that I might not have seen otherwise. Good conversation too!

    Very interesting and quite beautiful Victoriana. Autumn tree colours make it very photogenic.

    Brilliant visit on a cold Autumn day, the best time to go! Particularly liked the story of Reginald Warneford, VC winner in WW1 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reginald_Warneford

    Great afternoon, fascinating and humbling to be in the shadows of some courageous people like Sub Lt Reginald Warneford and Emmeline Pankhurst. Nice company of the living kind too!

    I tried to get to Fulham from King's Cross. However, due to disruption on the tube there was no way I could have got there in time. Really disappointed I missed it Hope this won't count against me - I tried my best

    November 23, 2013

  • Michela L.

    Hi Robert, I just realize I have no time to arrive there in time....Sorry..enjoy your walk.

    November 23, 2013

  • Tiranth

    Sorry Robert, I won't be able to make it there now for 1:30pm. The tube disruptions and late start to my morning means I'll now have to sadly give this a miss. Apologies.

    November 23, 2013

  • JT

    Don't think I can make it on time ! Last minute disruptions on Piccadilly line delayed connection to District line making arrival at Fulham Broadway way over the 1.30pm anticipated time! Apologies!

    it´s a very good idea to go to the Cinema Museum. On the other hand, can we visit the catacombs?

    November 19, 2013

    • Robert

      Yes, the catacombs in the cemetery are open on Saturday. The plan is to visit the Cinema Museum afterwards in the evening.

      1 · November 19, 2013

  • Robert

    After the cemetery visit, a few of us will be heading to the Cinema Museum in the evening who are having a social evening to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dr Who (with some special guests). Even if you are not a fan, it's a chance to look around the museum which is normally closed to the public. If you fancy coming, let me know on the day.
