The Monument is the tallest isolated stone column in the world. It was built by Sir Christopher Wren between 1671 and 1677 to commemorate the Great Fire of London which began on 2 September 1666. This impressive block of Portland stone rises 202 feet high into the London skyline, and is situated exactly 202 feet west of the baker's shop on Pudding Lane where the fire started. To reach the summit of the Monument you must first tackle the 312 steps of a steep spiral staircase. Once you have reached the top you will be able to enjoy the stunning views on offer. Admission: £1.50 adults; 50p under 16s.
After walking up 1000+ steps of stairs at St. Paul's Cathedral, we wandered over to the Monument, which required us walking up a couple hundred more steps. The view from the top is beautiful, the monument itself is quite impressive, and you even get a certificate on the way down recognizing that you've walked up all the steps. A nice sight to check out.
