The non-commercial code is both practical and informative by providing in Chinese with the basic information of map, visitor's codes and rules, and the history of Marx's tomb, the statement said.

It also provides with the Chinese translation of Engels's well known remarks at the funeral in 1883.

Dr. Ian Dungavell, chief executive of Friends of Highgate Cemetery Trust, said, "We are thrilled to be working with the China National Tourist Office to provide better information so our Chinese visitors can enjoy and appreciate this exceptional place, and in particular to understand more about Karl Marx."

Xue Ling, director of China National Tourist Office London, said the release of the QR code serves as the finale of the two-months long "China Weeks: when culture and tourism blend", and a new beginning of a partnership to enable Chinese visitors to the Marx's tomb an enhanced experience of cultural and historical touches.
