The historical burial ground at Bunhill Fields is recognised as a Grade I listed historic landscape. The site was in use from 1665-1860 for, in particular, Nonconformists, including Blake, Bunyan, Defoe, George Fox and Isaac Watts.
The history of the site, including monuments have been preserved and the site includes a tranquil public garden, a perfect place to escape the busy city.

My new favourite spot either before work or during lunch to relax and enjoy the area. This is a great place to people (or squirrel) watch, take in the fresh air, and admire the (morbid) history with all of the headstones.more

Great little cut through from City Road to Whitecross Street through the middle of a burial ground - the large green space has lots of shade from some fantastic trees - a favourite place when the kids were younger for picnics and ball games at the weekend - during the week on sunny days it is a popular place to sit and eat a sandwich. A real gem of a green space.more
The city of London is not a very peaceful place, so to find this little park was a breath of fresh air.
A bonus is it is a cut-through to white cross market, which is a street full of food vans, making it simple to have the convenience of ready-made food with the peace of a park.more
Delightful parklike resting place of William Blake, Thomas Hardy, Daniel Defore, among other English Nonconformists. I stumbled upon this whilst seeking another place entirely and spent some pleasant time contemplating graves.
