Ascension Parish Burial Ground, Cambridge

This burial ground has been described as Britain's brainiest cemetery. It is the resting place of many academics and other distinguished figures.

To reach it from central Cambridge, go north up Huntingdon Road until just after the junction with Storey's Way. Then turn left down All Souls Lane.

The burial ground is not always open. In the summer it is typically open from 0900 to 1700. In the winter it may close earlier, because it will close at dusk. And it may not be open on Sundays.
