Description
A flaming golden orb stands at the junction of Monument Street and Fish Street Hill, a permanent reminder of the 6 day Great Fire of London in 1666, that devastated the medieval City of London, including St. Pauls Cathedral and an estimated 13,200 houses.

The Great Fire started on Pudding Lane, 202 feet away from where the Monument now stands, at the bakery of Thomas Farriner, and was documented most famously in the Diary of Samuel Pepys. You will get to climb to the top of the 64 metre golden monument to enjoy 360° views of London, discover the devastation caused by the fire, and which notable London landmarks needed rebuilding.

If you have time after your tour, head over to Giltspur Street (a 20-minute walk away) to see the Golden Boy of Pye Corner – a statue to commemorate where the fire was finally stopped.

Built between 1886 and 1894 to ease road traffic while maintaining river access to the busy Pool of London docks, Tower Bridge is arguably one of the most recognised landmarks in the world.

See inside the 2 towers at either end of the bridge and discover the stories behind the engineering, architecture and people that built the bridge. Will you be brave enough to cross the 42 metre, glass-bottomed walkway that connects the two towers?

Enjoy! And remember – don’t call it London Bridge! That’s further up the river.
