More about the Abney Park Cemetery & Nature Reserve
Non-denominational cemetery, arboretum and nature reserve. Hidden away in the north-east corner of London, lies this highly influential, pioneering and yet relatively unknown beauty spot. Part nature reserve, part Victorian cemetery and part arboretum, Abney Park has a string of notable “firsts” attached to it… First Number 1: The early 18th century brainchild of Lady Mary Abney and Dr Isaac Watts (the prolific hymn writer), the park was the first wholly non-denominational garden cemetery in Europe with no "invidious dividing lines" and contains the first example of a non-denominational cemetery chapel in Europe. First Number 2: The cemetery’s 150-year-old frontage, intricately adorned with hieroglyphics and sacred lotus flowers, claims to represent the earliest complete design for a permanent 'Egyptian Revival' gateway at a cemetery anywhere in the world. First Number 3: When it was first launched Abney Park’s arboretum was the biggest of its kind in any European cemetery with over 2,500 trees and shrubs alphabetically arranged - the remains of the original tree collection can still be found in the grounds. First Number 4: At one time the home of a Quaker girls’ school – Abney Park was also where the first school bus in the world was introduced. As well as being a place of historical, architectural and religious significance, the park is also a renowned Local Nature Reserve. Birds and butterflies, in particular, thrive among the woodland glades dotted with weathered Victorian monuments, graves and tombs. A range of regular events and activities held around the grounds complete the picture. This hidden gem is a worthy rival of any of London’s major parks. Best for: Birds, butterflies and burials, trees and tombs. Did you know? An unexploded Second World War bomb is located somewhere in Abney Park.

In the midst of the peak tourist season, LondonTown within 24 hours managed to find me three alternatives for a group business booking in central London, all at great rates. It would have taken me days to do this on my own, even if I’d known all the hotels to approach. Great time and money saving, thanks LondonTown!

Huge thanks to you once again, I tried to find a group hotel deal online but was unable to; LondonTown really did an excellent job
Sales Operations Manager CEG UK
I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all your tremendously patient help over the last few months. We had a really successful conference, and all the reports I heard of the hotel and the whole experience were really positive. I do hope we weren’t too much trouble, especially with all the constant changes of numbers etc! Do just let me know if there’s still any follow-up to be done, but otherwise thanks again for your great work
