2. Wolvercote Cemetery, Oxford, UK
While you’re in Oxford, take a trip to pay your respects at Tolkien’s final resting place. The Wolvercote Cemetery is a few miles outside the Oxford city center. There you’ll find a modest headstone for Tolkien and his wife, Edith. Their forbidden love story is said to be the inspiration for Beren and Lúthien in The Silmarillion and, to some extent, Aragorn and Arwen in The Lord of the Rings.
