Brompton Cemetery

Welcome to Brompton Cemetery

Where the entire landscape was conceived as a garden as valuable for the living as for the dead.

Eating and drinking at Brompton Cemetery

Reflect and relax over coffee, pastries or a light bite at Café North Lodge – deep in the heart of London’s historic garden cemetery.

Café North Lodge – Brompton Cemetery’s Grade II listed café

Whether you’re here to explore the rich history of Brompton’s unique Victorian monuments and mausoleums, or to just to enjoy this tranquil oasis in the middle of the city – do drop by Café North Lodge for breakfast, lunch or just a quick cappuccino.

We’re open for early breakfasts on your way to work, or indulgent afternoon teas with friends. We stay open later in the summer, so you can dine outside on our open air terrace. And when the days grow shorter, eat inside and discover more about Brompton’s heritage – there are biographies and intriguing facts about some of the famous people buried here all around you.

Our food and drink is locally sourced where possible and sustainably prepared. We change our menus daily, according to what’s in season – and we ensure there’s a full range of vegetarian and vegan options available.

Brompton Cemetery is a well-known habitat for many small birds and animals – so please make sure you take any litter home or pop it in one of our bins when you leave.

Every purchase helps us care for Brompton Cemetery

A proportion of anything you spend at our cafés or kiosks goes straight back to help look after the Royal Parks, and the wealth of wildlife and natural habitats they contain.
