Assuming you don't mind walking around a cemetery late at night, this has the potential to be a very beautiful evening.

Highgate Cemetery will be opening late for some candle-lighting on All Saints' Day.

It's not a ceremony, or a service, you simply walk around the cemetery and admire the sight... and maybe use it for a period of reflection and remembrance.

Note: The event will be held in the East Cemetery (not the more famous West one), and you will be restricted to just some of the tarmac paths. Candles will be available for sale (bring your own matches). And they recommend that you bring a torch as well.
