  • The story about the dog alone is worth the visit, not to mention paying homage to the dog. Its a short walk from the Mile and other attractions, so worth the visit.  more »
  • Cemeteries are not sad as in France. I have no explanation but I enjoyed strolling around this place

  • A beautiful graveyard! The whole scary history is super interesting and it makes a cool and scary atmosphere. The whole graveyard is very clean, beautiful and stunning. All the tomb stones are super pretty. I love the fact that there’s a lot of green, plants there. To be honest I only came there to find the Tom stone where the famous Tom Riddle ( in real Tom Riddell) hidden is, but I found also a lot of other super cool things. Q: I found there a tomb stone of John Watson and has it and connection with the famous “Sherlock Holmes”?
  • Loved this whole experience! A truly heartwarming story wrapped up in a beautiful historical sight. Never would I have thought a graveyard could be so much fun and informative!! Highly recommend to all!
