Poem Depleted by Javier Guevara is on display at Brompton Cemetery as part of the KCAW22 Poetry Corner and Public Art Trail.

Brompton Cemetery is one of Britain’s oldest and most distinguished garden cemeteries. It combines historic monuments, trees and wildlife with the stories of the remarkable people buried here. This beautiful landscape is the only Cemetery in the country owned by the Crown and managed by The Royal Parks on behalf of the nation.

205,000 people from all walks of life are buried in Brompton Cemetery, from the suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst to military personnel and Chelsea Pensioners, artists, actors and founders of Chelsea Football Club. There are some 35,000 monuments of which 28 are Listed.

Nestled in Brompton Cemetery is Café North Lodge, a Grade II listed building ideal for those wishing to relax whilst visiting the historic garden cemetery. Serving breakfast and lunch, the café stays open for afternoon tea and remains open until late evening in the summer.

There is an informal daily changing menu with a variety of locally sourced and seasonal produce, and a range of hot and cold drinks.

There is the option to dine in and cast your eyes over the unique cafe walls decorated with biographies and famous works of those buried in the Cemetery, or sit outside in the courtyard to enjoy the surroundings.

Opening hours
Open from 8.30am. Closing times change throughout the year and are 1 hour before the cemetery closes (view Brompton Cemetery opening times)
