Just a short walk from London Bridge Hotel, is the ever present reminder to the Great Fire of London – The Monument. The 61 meter column stands at the junction of Monument Street and Fish Street Hill in the City of London. It was built between 1671 and 1677 to commemorate the Great Fire of London and to celebrate the rebuilding of the City.
Inside The Monument is a winding stair case with 311 carved stone steps – The Challenge – to reach the top – *interesting fact alert* the height of the building is the exact distance between it and the site in Pudding Lane where the fire began - the reward – panoramic views of London and a certificate to take home with a frame- worth every step up and back down – phew!
The Monument is open daily and prices are just GBP3.00 for an adult.
