Always delightfully pessimistic, British people take great pride in their cemeteries — especially the ones in London, grandly known as the "Magnificent Seven." Unfortunately, due to financial difficulties after World War II, a few of these graveyards were sold cheaply and abandoned.
But in 2000, Tower Hamlets Cemetery regained its pride when it was turned into a nature preserve. A student center was also opened on the grounds, which allows students to play on the property. I guess cemeteries don't necessarily have to be grim.

Tower Hamlets Cemetery is now a booming tourist destination, and it hosts various activities, classes, and festivals every year. I've never been particularly fond of cemeteries, but this one actually seems kind of nice.
