Just a short walk from the Monument underground station is this Doric column built to commemorate the Great Fire of London in 1666, which burnt for 3 days and decimated a major part of the city. On a clear day, you should climb the the...More

Impressive monument but rather lost amongst the high rise buildings surrounding it - you can't really see it until you are on top of it.

A great way to see the city, but first you have to climb to the top. There are over 100 narrow stone steps which shouldn't be under estimated. Passing on the steps can be quite a challenge. But once you get to the top the...More

Hidden away but fabulous when you find this great location. Pretty easy to get to and pretty close to many of the main attractions in London. Take some time to visit this historic al location

Although not necessarily worth it for a special trip, do pass by this on the way to the Tower of London or other attractions in the area to see this monument to the Fire of London in the 17th century.

Hiding, surrounded by the modern banks and coffee shops is a piece of history that can be easily overlooked. This simple piece of architecture is simply the monument to the great fire of London in 1966. Now that it has been restored, the spiral staircase...More

311 steps, follow in the footsteps of history. Fantastic fun to say you’ve done it and you get a free certificate at the end! Really recommend a visit - relatively quiet now it’s been dwarfed by The Shard, Walkie Talkie etc, which made it great...More

A must do experience, with impressive views. You only need a spare hour, and you get to learn some great historic facts and exercise up all the stairs. My kids love running up them (a bit slower on the way down) not expensive and worth...More
