Arnos Vale Cemetery

A secret world is hidden away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Arnos Vale Cemetery is rich with history and hosts many fascinating structures and memorials. Paths wind around old gravestones which have become part of the natural landscape, wildlife thrives here as every nook and cranny is filled with flora and fauna. With the continuous efforts of many local long-term volunteers, a lot of the paths have been cleared, but quite a few areas are still overgrown, which makes it all the more atmospheric!

This walk is a great area to wander around after giving your dog a chance to stretch their legs and have a run at Arnos Court Park, which is right next to the cemetery.
