Cat from London {England}

ghosts of highgate cemetery

Do you know the creepy true story of the ghosts of Highgate Cemetery?

Highgate Cemetery is supposedly one of the most haunted places of London, England. One man, whose car had broken down, reported seeing a hideous apparition with glowing red eyes. Another man was knocked to the ground by a creature that "seemed to glide" from the wall of the cemetery and then disappeared into thin air. Some say it's a vampire, waiting for unsuspecting victims to take with him under the foliage-covered grounds.

Besides the ghosts and the vampire, Highgate Cemetery is also home to several cats who are said to be there to protect us from this evil.

However, those who are brave enough will discover one of London's most stunning places (more pictures here). The cemetery is divided into two parts, each with their separate entrance fees, tours, and visiting rules. Highgate Cemetery opened in the nineteenth century as a response to London's lack of burial grounds. It's the third of the seven cemeteries to be built back then. Some famous graves included those of Karl Marx, Douglas Adams, George Elliot, and Patrick Caulfield.

Address: Swain's Lane, Highgate, London N6 6PJ, England.

  9. I am one of those weird people that love walking through old cemeteries and reading the dates and inscriptions on headstones. It can be very fascinating, but not on Halloween night! Haha!

  15. Great pics! England is full of spooky stories. I haven't experienced anything creepy yet, but I used to live not far from The Enfield Poltergeist (though not at the time of the hauntings - much later).

  23. Les chats apportent la vie. Ils sont les gardiens des âmes .... les cimetières leur vont bien.
    J'aime bien me promener dans les anciens cimetières.
    Bonne journée

  27. I've only been to London once and I didn't see any cats. I have to say that given how badly the trip went a cat or two would have helped.

  28. Good thing the kitties are there to protect us. I'd like to go in the daylight to see the beauty in the place. ~RascalandRocco
