Pocket Guide: England Brookwood Cemetery Hotels

The idea of visiting a cemetery may seem like a bit of a downer when you're supposed to be on holiday! But in fact some of them are full of interest and can be educational as well as pleasant to visit. A place like Brookwood Cemetery in Woking has great historic interest too, as one of the first major cemeteries set up by the ever-practical Victorians to deal with London's biggest problem at the time – the growing number of deceased. From your Surrey hotel in or near Woking, Brookwood Cemetery makes a surprisingly enjoyable day out.

Surrey Hotels for Brookwood Cemetery in Woking

It may be true, as has often been said, that London is one enormous graveyard with a thin veneer of life on the surface, but it took the Victorians to deal with the practical problems literally thrown up by that. London's piecemeal burial pits were by that time overflowing and becoming a health hazard, and the splendidly named London Necropolis National Mausoleum Company took the lead in 1852 by turning death into a profitable business. A big chunk of Woking's common was bought from Lord Onslow and the original cemetery established here covered 40 acres. Mourners and coffins were conveyed conveniently from Waterloo Station via the London and South West Railway.

A Day at Brookwood Cemetery from Surrey Hotels

Brookwood had a pair of private train stations, serving both halves of the cemetery, and the whole place was opened up to the public in 1854. Almost a quarter of a million people have been buried here since then, with prices varying depending on where they want to be deposited. There are also military cemeteries on the site, run by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

Based at a local Surrey hotel or B&B, of which there are many in this area, Brookwood Cemetery is an interesting place for you to come and wander in attractive surroundings. The pathways are well maintained, and there's an appropriate air of serenity which can be refreshing after the usual tourist round. Woking town centre is close by for refreshments.
