A permanent reminder of the Great Fire of 1666, the Monument commemorates one of the most famous events in London's history. Standing regally on the piazza between Fish Street Hill and Monument Street, the 202ft column designed by Sir Christopher...more

Really enjoyed this little piece of history. Yes there are a lot of stairs and it is a tight climb but it was so beautiful from the top. Quiet at the top to look around the area. The big building built around here do block...More
This is one of the cheapest attractions in London and certainly the cheapest high vantage point we found. The catch is that you have to walk up 300 spiral stairs to get there. This has the advantage of making the viewing terrace unpopular, and therefore...More
Had a lovely stroll down the Thames from tower bridge to visit this historic monument. I was the only person at the top of the 311 steps and the views of London were fabulous. Cost a lady Godiva (£5) entry and they give you a...More
It is not the tallest structure so your view is partially blocked by the surrounding buildings but it is the history of the structure that warrants a visit. Went at 11am on a Sunday and it was not busy, no queues etc. Entrance is £5...More
Situated near to where the Great Fire of London started, if it was laid on the ground the top would be on the actual spot in Bakehouse Lane. Near to the Tower of London you can enter and climb the 311 steps to the top...More
I am very glad I made room for this stop. It is a long way up some very narrow stairs but at the top you are met with a very lovely view of the city and I am now the proud owner of a certificate...More
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
It depends how fit you are in terms of climbing the stairs. I would say that 5-10 minutes to climb, 10 minutes at the top and then a couple of minutes down. It does also depend on how busy the stairs and top is. 30 minutes... More
It depends how fit you are in terms of climbing the stairs. I would say that 5-10 minutes to climb, 10 minutes at the top and then a couple of minutes down. It does also depend on how busy the stairs and top is. 30 minutes max for the whole monument.
