The Monument

The Monument commemorates one of the most significant events in London's history: the Great Fire of 1666. Standing on the piazza between Fish Street Hill and Monument Street, the 202ft column designed by Robert Hooke in consultation with Sir Christopher Wren, celebrates the City that rose from the ashes. You can climb The Monument's 311 spiral steps to enjoy one of the most unique views London has to offer.
