There are approximately 170,000 people buried in around 53,000 graves at Highgate Cemetery. Highgate Cemetery is notable both for some of the people buried there as well as for its de facto status as a nature reserve.
The cemetery is located on both sides of Swain’s Lane in Highgate, N6, next to Waterlow Park. Highgate, like the others of the Magnificent Seven, soon became a fashionable place for burials and was much admired and visited. The cemetery’s grounds are full of trees, shrubbery and wild flowers, all of which have been planted and grown without human influence. The tomb of Karl Marx, the Egyptian Avenue and the Columbarium are Grade I listed buildings.


It is designated Grade I on the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England. The inner-city cemeteries, mostly the graveyards attached to individual churches, had long been unable to cope with the number of burials and were seen as a hazard to health and an undignified way to treat the dead. The Victorian attitude to death and its presentation led to the creation of a wealth of Gothic tombs and buildings. Fifteen acres were consecrated for the use of the Church of England, and two acres set aside for Dissenters.
It occupies a spectacular south-facing hillside site slightly downhill from the top of the hill of Highgate itself, next to Waterlow Park.
The Egyptian Avenue and the Circle of Lebanon (topped by a huge Cedar of Lebanon) feature tombs, vaults and winding paths dug into hillsides.


In 1854 the area to the east of the original area across Swains Lane was bought to form the eastern part of the cemetery. For its protection, the oldest section, which holds an impressive collection of Victorian mausoleums and gravestones, plus elaborately carved tombs, allows admission only in tour groups. The newer eastern section, which contains a mix of Victorian and modern statuary, can be toured unescorted.
