Brompton CemeteryOpened in the mid-19th century Brompton Cemetary was set up as one of the 'Magnificent Seven' series of cemeteries, which included Highgate Cemetery, established to cope with the growing demand for burial space in the city. The 39-acre site designed by Benjamin Baud includes a rather grand domed chapel the style of the basilica of St. Peter's in Rome at its southern end. Nearby are two warm coloured colonnades made from Bath stone flanking the central path, creating an air of gravitas of as you walk respectfully through the graveyard. Family mausolea, winged sculptures and stone urns all make fitting epitaphs, and a suitable focus for quiet contemplation. Look out for some famous occupants (or take a tour if you really want to know); auctioneer Samuel Leigh Sotheby, and John Wisden, champion cricketer and founder of Wisden's Almanack are just some of the well known people brought to Brompton Cemetary as their final resting place. Beatrix Potter fans can walk in her footsteps and see if they can spot Peter Rabbett, Jeremiah Fisher and Mr McGregor among the engravings on the headstones. As a resident of The Boltons nearby, Beatrix would come here for inspiration.
