The Monument

The Monument is often a sight as you wander around Central London, the beautiful drum and copper urn surmounted on top. The Monument stands as a permanent memorial of where the Great Fire of London 1666 began.

The stone memorial contains 311 steps which lead to a viewing platform where you can see some of the most beautiful sights of London. The joy of being 61 metres high is you get to see the landscape of London without feeling too apart from it.

When you visit and have climbed the steps you will receive a certificate to commemorate your achievement. As a short 30 minute activity, I would highly recommend and at only £4.50 for a ticket, quite inexpensive.
