Spread across 72 acres, Kensal Green Cemetery includes two conservation areas and boasts 33 different species of birds. It opened in 1833 and is home to many large mausoleums in tribute to the rich and famous, such as Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and playwright Harold Pinter. The cemetery offers respite from city life, as well as an interesting juxtaposition of the nearby industrial gas structure with nature.
