The Monument to the Great Fire of London

The Monument to the Great Fire of London

As a landmark to one of the most famous events in London's history, the Monument stands alone.

Designed by Sir Christopher Wren and Dr Robert Hooke, and completed in 1677, this colossal column commemorates the Great Fire of London and celebrates the City which rose from the ashes.

Every year over 150,000 visitors climb the 311 spiral steps to the Monument's observation gallery to enjoy unique and exhilarating views of the capital.

Major restoration work was completed in 2010, ensuring that The Monument has a new lease of life - sparkling and revitalized, come and enjoy it afresh.
