This rather ugly and slightly mad obelisk in a North London cemetery is a monument to the greatest question in politics—whether it is people and ideas that change the world or economics and events. Marx himself would say it is economics. Whatever your opinion, it was, of course, his ideas that had more influence on 20th century history than anyone else’s. Other notable graves here include the godfather of punk, Malcolm McLaren, and the actual father of British politics most notorious fratricide, Ralph Miliband.

Open every day from 10am - 5pm, Highgate Cemetery is considered one of London's most infamous cemeteries, dating back to 1839 with its imposing Victorian Gothic tombs and mausoleums. Go in search of some of the famous residences amongst the 53, 000 graves, such as Karl Marx, sci-fi author Douglas…
Lovely location, a gem of London right near by. Karl Marx's grave, and book the WEST side if you can too.
Surprisingly entertaining tours of the cemetery which is the burial site of London's rich and famous. The West Cemetery has incredible tombs and vaults cut into the hillside at the Egyptian Avenue and Circle of Lebanon designed by architect Stephen Geary.

“Our favourite park in London. Has a historic house with cafe and art gallery, and rolling hills providing a beautiful view over London on a clear day. A great place for walking around, taking a picnic. Grab a coffee somewhere in Highgate Village (many options here, including a few of the large coffee shop franchises) and take a stroll around the lake!”

“12 minutes on foot down the A1 brings you to Highgate Tube, on the High Barnet branch of the Northern Line and less than 20 minutes to Kings Cross. Unlike East Finchley, this station is actually underground so better in bad weather! ”
