I loved going up The Monument. It's crazy to think that 12 years after The Great Plague and 11 years after The Great Fire of London that The Monument was built and ready for visitors. How it must have towered over the City.
Climb the 311 steps inside to reach the view point. Although I really hate heights I soon got over it and began to love the views. (And felt a sense of achievement that going up in a lift in The Shard will never bring.)
Also interesting is that if The Monument was laid down flat it would reach the point in Pudding Lane where the Great Fire of 1666 started. Also only £4. A Winner if you're fit and healthy.
Please note they said they only give certificates of ascend to children but I asked nicely and got one. Love the drawing of The Monument in 1750 on it. (It could easily be framed). It's another of a gem from the great architect Sir Christopher Wren.
