The George Eliot Fellowship

Highgate Cemetery Visit

We have organised a literary tour to Highgate Cemetery in London to visit the grave of George Eliot on Thursday 6th July. Our visit will begin with a tour of the West Cemetery accompanied by a Highgate volunteer lasting approximately 70 minutes.

During the day there will also be the opportunity to learn about other people buried at Highgate with a connection to George Eliot, at the minute we know of at least 10 people!

It is approximately a 10 minute uphill walk to to the centre of Highgate so it is recommended that people bring lunch with them to take full advantage of their time at Highgate.

* For people wishing to make their own way to Highgate there is a reduced ticket price of £15 for members and £20 for non members
