"The Great Fire..." Monument - Great Fire of London Tip by BluBluBlu

Monument - Great Fire of London, London: 54 reviews and 119 photos


The Great Fire of London happened in September 1666, and wiped out 80% of the city...over 400 acres. It started in a bakers in Pudding Lane, and is now remembered by 'The Monument'. This huge stone construction is open to the public...but you'd better be fit as there are 202 steps to the top! Not as great a view as from the London Eye...but definately worth a visit!

Address: Fish St Hil, London EC3R 8AH
Directions: Its in EC3, close to the north side of London Bridge.
