Brompton Cemetery information
While this atmospheric 19th-century, 16-hectare bone-yard's most famous denizen is suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, the cemetery is fascinating as the possible inspiration for many of Beatrix Potter’s characters. A local resident in her youth, Potter may have noted some of the names on headstones: there's a Mr Nutkin, Mr McGregor, Jeremiah Fisher, Tommy Brock – even a Peter Rabbet!
The chapel and colonnades at one end are modelled on St Peter’s in Rome. Two-hour tours depart at 2pm every Sunday from May to August (and two Sundays a month from September to April) from the South Lodge, near the Fulham Rd entrance. The annual summer open day includes rare visits to the catacombs (see www.brompton-cemetery.org.uk for details).
