Highgate Cemetery

Filming location

Highgate Cemetery in London was one of several filming locations used in Taste the Blood of Dracula (1969). Its incredibly gothic atmosphere made it the ideal location for the surroundings of the church at which Dracula is first resurrected, and at which he meets his downfall.

Nowadays it is a popular tourist location, due to the many famous Victorians buried there. The list includes Karl Marx, Christina Rossetti, George Eliot and, more recently, Sir Ralph Richardson and Douglas Adams.

It was also used as a location for the 1971 comedy-horror The Abominable Dr Phibes, starring Vincent Price.
