What are the first sights you seek when you travel to a new city? The museums? The top restaurants? Or the cemeteries? I choose cemeteries. Although some people think that’s weird, I find them a through-the-looking-glass way of understanding a place and how it grew.
They are fascinating, beautiful, a bit mysterious but rarely ghoulish or spooky. Because of its rich history, London is one of the best cities for touring cemeteries. I started at Bunhill Fields, close to the City, as London’s financial center is called.
