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

A lovely place to walk through

& contains the grave of John

Bunyon 1688, the author of the

Pilgrims Progress.

There is also the gravestone of William

Blake & his wife, nearby, but Blake's body was later

removed & interred in Poet's Corner,Westminster Abbeymore

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.
