Brompton Cemetery



Brompton Cemetery

The cemetery that gave fame to Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit.

Location: Old Brompton Road, West Brompton

Description: Established by Act of Parliament, as one of the Magnificent Seven, West of London and Westminster Cemetery (as it was then known) was opened in 1840. It's one of the largest (over 35,000 memorials) and most distinguished.

You may have seen the cemetery on the big screen, such as Eastern Promises, The Wisdom of Crocodiles, Sherlock Holmes (Guy Ritchie's 2009 version), Crush, Stormbreaker, Finding Neverland, and Johnny English, and The Wings of the Dove (1997 version).

Notable residents here include suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, cruiseship founder Samuel Cunard, cricketer John Wisden, and actor Brian Glover.

There's also the peculiar story of how author Beatrix Potter used names from headstones in Brompton Cemetery in her famous children's book Peter Rabbit.
