Highgate Cemetery, undoubtedly the most celebrated of the Magnificent 7 cemeteries, is really two separate cemeteries, West (established in 1839) and East (established in 1854). Highgate East can be visited freely within the opening hours on payment of a small fee, but Highgate West can only be visited as part of a guided tour. This means that you cannot explore the whole cemetery freely.

Highgate West features probably some of the most distinctive and celebrated cemetery architecture, including the Egyptian Avenue (5th image), and Circle of Lebanon (6th image below). It's a place that is well worth visiting whether you are a fan of cemeteries or not (even though it's a shame you can't explore the whole place on you're own).
