About the British Cemetery

The British cemetery is a quiet place often missed by tourists, it’s located in the capital Kerkyra and is well worth a visit, the custodian George is always happy to speak to visitors and show people around. Just remember to wear insect repellent as mosquitoes and other biting insects are rife in the cemetery.

The cemetery is the last resting place for mainly British soldiers and other Brits who lived and died on the island. The cemetery was founded in 1814 when Corfu became a British Protectorate and is still in use today.

Whilst wandering round you’ll see many different types of flowers and bushes and if you’re lucky you may even run into a tortoise too.

Getting to the British Cemetery is simple as it’s in the capital so if you happen to be in Kerkyra anyway you can simply walk there, alternatively there’s plenty of roadside parking available, the entrance is on a road called Kolokotroni so head for that if you have sat nav.
