The Catacombs of London

London also has its fair share of catacombs, starting with the London Bridge catacombs, now part of an official tourist experience called The London Bridge Experience, which, as the Londonist reports, comes with added zombie exhibitions and some real human remains. Londonist writer Matt describes:

The catacombs are immense. We tried to map them, but got lost. Seven chambers run east-west, with frequent side passages and alcoves. No natural light gets down here. The air is humid and dusty. Base camp was set in the extreme south-west, in a room that contained an unexplained rectangular pit and Tombraider crates of unknown content.

Meanwhile, as reported by The Telegraph, more catacombs exist under Kensal Green Cemetery (still open for more burials, and open for visits with reservation), West Norwood Cemetery with 3500 coffins,  Nunhead Cemetery in south London, and Brompton Cemetery near Earl Court, along with others at Abney Park Cemetery, Nunhead Cemetery, and Tower Hamlets Cemetery.  Collectively, these cemeteries are known as the “Magnificnet Seven.” You can visit the West Norwood Cemetery catacombs via Subterranea Britannica. The Camden “Catacombs” meanwhile are slightly mislabeled, as they were used as stables for horses and ponies working on the rail lines.
