Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I purchase tickets in advance?

Tickets for The Monument to the Great Fire of London are only available to be purchased on-site on the day.

However you can purchase Tower Bridge + The Monument tickets via our online booking page. Of course you can purchase this ticket on the day of your visit at The Monument or Tower Bridge. 

Is The Monument fully accessible?

Due to the nature of The Monument with its 311 steps, leading to the top, it is not accessible for those in a wheelchair or with mobility difficulties.

As a historic building, we are limited in our offer. We continue to look at ways to make The Monument accessible. 

Can I take my belongings up The Monument?

You can take your personal belongings up with you. However, we ask that larger bags and backpacks are left at the entrance. This is to avoid damage to the structure's historic fabric.

Also leaving larger items at the entrance will allow for a better visitor experience because the spiral staircase is narrow, and the viewing platform has limited space.

Please note: there is no charge for leaving your larger items at the entrance. 

Are there any discounted offers?

We have discounted rates available for students and concessions.

The best value ticket is the Tower Bridge + The Monument, saving 20% when you visit two London attractions. 

Do you offer facilitate school tours/ trips?

School groups are very welcome at The Monument. Visit the learning section

For other group types, we ask that you allow plenty of time as visit entry is staggered due to limited capacity.
