We are the Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park

We are the Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, an independent charity responsible for managing Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, a nature reserve and heritage site in East London.

Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park offers everyone a breathing space in the heart of East London. This woodland cemetery is a unique place of transformation: a people’s cemetery, a place for remembrance, a sanctuary for humans as well as nature, a place for festivals, field studies and forest schools. Always changing with the seasons, it is rooted in the history of the East End, a place of rich heritage that is full of possibilities and freedom for all.

From festivals to guided walks, we’ve got something for everyone.
