Arnos Vale is internationally-recognised as one of Britain’s best examples of a Victorian garden cemetery, set in a leafy 45-acre Arcadian landscape dotted with classical buildings, historic monuments, sweeping carriage drives and leafy walks lined with wildflowers. It is often described as a sanctuary of peace and tranquillity in an otherwise busy part of a bustling city.
The cemetery regularly host yoga classes. Check the website to see which classes you can attend.
