Learn about the Great Fire of London and enjoy fantastic views of the city at the top of The Monument to the Great Fire of London

Designed by Sir Christopher Wren (architect of the iconic St. Paul's Cathedral) and built to commemorate the Great Fire of London, The Monument to the Great Fire of London is one of the best ways to enjoy spectacular views of London while learning about an important moment in London's history.

Standing 202 feet high and 202 feet from the spot on Pudding Lane where the great fire is thought to have started, The Monument to the Great Fire of London is the tallest isolated stone column in the world. All visitors who climb the 311 steps are awarded a certificate to prove that they made it to the top.

Please note: Children under 13 years must be accompanied by an adult.
Wheeled cases, bulky rucksacks and large items of luggage cannot be taken to the top of The Monument. This is to protect the historic structure and because the staircase and viewing platform are narrow at some points.

With a London Pass you can experience the fabulous views at the top of The Monument to the Great Fire of London and learn all about the Great Fire of London.

"I would definitely recommend the pass. There were various places, i.e. the War Museum, Royal Mews, etc. that we would not have gone to if we didn't have the pass. We ended up seeing many more attractions since they were included, and spent much less on admissions than if we hadn't purchased the pass. Showing the pass also made entry easy."
Ernest from USA

"My boyfriend and I purchased the London Pass ahead of time to use when we got to London and it was wonderful for public transport, avoiding cues and accessing all the sites without having to fawk out cash or paying per site. This also allowed us to see much more than we normally would have. Because you buy the card at a flat rate you are saving money too! It makes travelling around London a pleasure as a tourist."
