Walk in Tower Hamlets Cemetery

Often overlooked, Tower Hamlets Cemetery is a 33 acre cemetery opened in 1841 and still in use for burials up until 1966. Nowadays, it is largely maintained as an urban woodland and nature reserve, and a variety of wildlife is found there, including trees, plants, birds, insects, bats, beetles and butterflies.

The walk is organised by The Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, who manage the park with two dedicated members of staff, a board of trustees, and the support of over 3,000 volunteers. Today the Friends are organising an organised guided walk in the Cemetery Park, which takes place from 2pm-4pm, examining the Park’s natural history, and celebrating its spring bulbs.
