Overview

The Monument to the Great Fire of London 1966 is one of 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 62 meters (202 feet) high into the London skyline, and is situated 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.
