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 City which rose from the ashes.

Every year over 230,000 visitors climb the 311 spiral steps to The Monument's observation gallery, 160 feet (48.7 metres) above the ground,  to enjoy unique and exhilarating views of the capital. The 360 degree views available allow visitors to take in the spectacular panoramas of London past and present. 

Major restoration work costing £4.5 million was completed in 2010, a task which is only undertaken every 100 years. The Monument has a new lease of life and has emerged revitalized; come and enjoy it afresh!
