About the event

Grab a lantern and explore the graves of the East End dead!

Tower  Hamlets Cemetery Park is the final resting place of 350,000 people -  that's more or less the same as the current living population of the  London Borough of Newham, according to the 2021 census. This All Hallows  Eve, step through the gates and experience the East End as it was by  meeting some of the characters who called the East End 'home'. Animal  importers, almost/possibly Hollywood stars and formidable battle-axes are  some of the remarkable characters who will be briefly and respectfully  resurrected this Spooky Season by tour guides and historians Sheldon K. Goodman and Sacha  Coward of the Cemetery Club, in their highly popular yearly tour of this magnificent Victorian cemetery.

With  a choice of times, the tours will start at the War Memorial, by the  Soanes Centre - which is just a short walk from the main gate. Please  wear suitable footwear and wrap up warm!
