  • There are more stairs than you think. The stairwell is very narrow, so it’s good to go just before closing when it’s not too busy. The staff are very friendly and the views of the Thames, Tower Bridge...  more »
  • It was quite a trek up the 311 steps to the top but totally worth it for the views. Went at opening and only 2 other people there.  more »

  • The monument is one of London's undiscovered treasured tourist attractions. I say undiscovered but what I should say is forgotten. The monument was placed there just outside Monument station and is a reminder of the great fire of London. It is only accessible for those who can walk stairs. The stairs are 311 steps in total but the journey to the top while physically daring is well worth the hike. The views from the top are amazing and well worth the trip.
  • Brilliant non expensive fun if you want something different to do in London and a good view! Climb the 311 steps to the top. It is just a viewing platform not a bar or anything! :) When you reach the bottom you actually get a certificate which is great for the money! Wonderful hidden historic London gem! It is supposed to look like a giant candle. The gold top being the flame. Beautiful!
