Ever peered behind the iron gates of an old Cemetery and wanted to find out more? Who’s buried there? What did they do with their lives?
You are invited to experience London’s spectacular graveyards for tales of mystery, intrigue and scandal. Led by Sheldon K. Goodman, a qualified City of Westminster Tour Guide, and Sam Perrin, an experienced guide around Highgate, Abney Park and Kensal Green, allow yourself to be introduced to these Libraries of the Dead and see what stories can be uncovered. These tours are designed for the general public, although private tours can be designed upon request.
“The life-stories were well chosen, a good mix of sad, funny and plain weird. It was a fine example of public engagement.” @WorldOfWatters
“I have always loved being told stories, and discovering stories to share with others – and Sheldon is an excellent storyteller. As we followed Sheldon through the woodland, skipping between decades, it felt like we were travelling through time.” Rachel Belward
“We enjoyed a great tour around Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park with Sheldon. He was engaging, well researched and has a great turn of phrase. Sheldon tells stories brilliantly and is able to bring the dead back to life (figuratively speaking). I would heartily recommend him as a tour guide.” Justin Leslie
