This might be an unusual attraction but is definitely one of the most significant ones in London. Located in Highgate, what makes this cemetery an important attraction is that it has been home to the graves of some of the most important people of the city including Karl Marx. Within its somber and quaint avenues of mortality lie the entombed poets, painters, princes and paupers. There at least 850 notable people buried at Highgate including 18 Royal Academicians, 6 Lord Mayors of London and 48 Fellows of the Royal Society. George Eliot, the famous British Novelist had also been buried here. Apart from being the resting place for the famous people, this site is also full of aesthetic and natural beauty. Enveloped in an old world charm, this cemetery is perched on a hill that adds to its quiet charm. Inside, there are labyrinths of Egyptian sepulchers and a wealth of Gothic tombs and buildings that render exquisite beauty and art.
