The Monument

The Monument to the Great Fire of London is reached by climbing 311 steps. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the attraction, it is not suitable for people with mobility difficulties or people that use a wheelchair.

As a historic building, we are limited in our access capabilities. However we continue to look at different ways to make The Monument accessible for all.

Website Accessibility

We've endeavoured to make The Monument's website as accessible as possible for all our users by using valid HTML, valid CSS and testing it using W3C’s testing tools and manually testing by our web developers.

If you notice any accessibility issues with this website or you would like to suggest how we can improve the accessibility then we'd like to hear from you. Please send us your comments by emailing to
