The LUC's distinctive architecture - it resembles a cathedral - stands out in the Square Mile and is visible from the South Bank. It's a stone's throw from Monument, where the Great Fire began in 1666 destroying 13,200 houses in its ferocious four-day furnace. Therefore there is little original architecture left in the City. The warm-colored LUC building, however, is in another league. There's no public access to the tower, so you'll have to climb up the Monument for great views over London. However, the LUC can be appreciated from the outside. Up close, you will see big bronze sculptures of three horses in the forecourt. Sculpted by Althea Wynne, they have since been nicknamed Sterling, Dollar and Yen.
