“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life,” memorably proclaimed Samuel Johnson. Whereupon that man — presumably — is buried in London. Lucky him (or her). The city has some of the best, most atmospheric, cemeteries in the world.
Luminaries from Karl Marx (Highgate Cemetery) to the suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst (Brompton Cemetery) to Johnson himself (Westminster Abbey, which is really not your everyday resting place) are buried here.
