We read about this on tripadvisor and decided to stop by as it sounded intriguing. It was much more than that. The story behind it and the sentiments posted we very moving. Definitely worth a visit. Expecting I may return.
Crossbones is somewhere that has been on my list of places to visit for a while now. Unfortunately it was closed due to staff shortages the Friday we visited. The gates are a fascinating insight into the history of the site and those remembered there....More
A truly beautiful place to visit owned by the Transport for London. It contains the bodies of over 15000 people over half being children. This was unhallowed ground where paupers, prostitutes, and like minded. The gated are covered with ribbons in sympathy with the dead....More

For all its gruesome history this is truly one of the most peaceful and calming places I've ever been. Make sure you get someone who can give you a bit of a tour. It's history is amazing. We can't let places like this be built...More

Former graveyard for London prostitutes laid to rest in unconsecrated ground after being taxed by the church for their Labours Off the beaten track in Southwark but worth a visit to see how the locals are fighting to preserve this neglected area.
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
