Egypt Undead: A Walk through Kensal Green Cemetary

Location

Kensal Green Cemetery (link Map)
Harrow Road | London |

Open to: Academic | Public | Student
Admission: Price: £7 Adult / £5 Concession or Friends of the Petrie Museum or Kensal Green Cemetery
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

Explore the influence of ancient Egypt on the architecture and monuments of London, led by Cathie Bryan. The adoption of Egyptian architecture and themes in Victorian England is well illustrated by numerous monuments at London’s first garden cemetery, the Cemetery of All Souls at Kensal Green (1833). We will see a royal mausoleum in the Egyptian style, and tombs commissioned by aristocrats, artists, politicians, military men, engineers and captains of finance and industry. In addition the Friends of Kensal Green Cemetery have arranged for us to see the Catacombs.
