Highgate Cemetery opened in 1839. It was run by a private company until the 1970s when it was found to be no longer commercially viable and was left for nature to take over.
In 1975 the Friends of Highgate Cemetery was formed with the aim of conserving it, and, after much restoration, English Hertiage has now listed it as a Grade 1 park. Members will enjoy a tour of the West Cemetery and an introduction to the East Cemetery.
