Built in the 18th century it's packed with history and a peaceful spot to wonder through
Creep through the overgrown woods of Abney Park Cemetery, past the crumbling gravestones, and you will eventually emerge into a large central clearing dominated by the menacing shell of a derelict chapel. The impressive gothic-revival building dates from 1840, but was gutted by fire in the 1970s and…
incredible old cemetery. Enjoy the peace and quiet and wildlife in this London gem of a park.
“If you're feeling skint grab a delicious freshly baked loaf from here and toast it back at the flat!”
“The best butcher in the area and the go-to destination for fresh meat and a delicious assortment of sundries...”
“Great selection of craft lagers and real ales. One for the beer drinkers. Serves tandoori style food which I haven’t had yet but I imagine goes perfectly with beer.”
“Beautiful park great for adults and kids. Pond area is a favourite and for kids there is a really nice play ground and a paddling pool in summer.”
