Summer In London – Golders Green

Daily Constitutional Editor Adam writes…


Every year on The Daily Constitutional, as the high season for visitors to London hots up, I spend August sharing a few archive posts. This year I'm reposting recommendations from our If You Do One Other Thing In London slot (a regular feature of our Saturday London Spy posts) and updated posts from the Best Museums In London series, in which the London Walks guides shared their best London museum tips. 

If theres' a London Walks tour starting or ending nearby I'll add the details at the bottom of each post. I hope you find these posts helpful over the course of the summer (and beyond).

Keep in touch - I'm not going into hiding! - I'll be posting throughout August and, of course, I'll see many of you "out there" on London Walks tours. All of our regular features – and some new ones, too – will return in September.

Visit Golders Green Crematorium


London's first crematorium – and one of the oldest in the UK – was opened at Golders Green in 1902. Many of its buildings and memorials are Grade II Listed and the grounds feature in the National Register of Historic Parks & Gardens.




One of London's loveliest green spaces, it provides the final resting place for Prime Ministers and playwrights, musicians and movie stars. The staff are exceptionally helpful if you are looking for a specific memorial and there's a tea room, too.



The grounds are open in Summer - 09:00 - 18:00 and in Winter - 09:00 - 16:00

The next Hampstead Garden Suburb walk – led by award-winning Karen Pierce-Goulding – will be on the winter 2016/17 programme. Keep up w

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
