The Monument, designed by Sir Christopher Wren, has been welcoming visitors for more than 300 years.

Located 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.

Climb the 311 steps leading to the top of this historic landmark (built 1677) to take in spectacular views of London. As recognition of such an achievement, you'll receive a certificate as proof of your athletic abilities!
