Monument to the Great Fire of London Tours - page 2

star-5
42 Reviews
Monument to the Great Fire of London
The Monument to the Great Fire of London, known locally as the Monument, commemorates the fire that swept London in 1666. Designed by Sir Christopher Wren and completed in 1677, the 202-foot (61-meter) Doric column stands exactly 202 feet (61 meters) from where the fire began. Today, visitors can ascend the landmark for panoramic views of the city.

The Basics
See the Monument along with its neighboring attractions on a city tour, learning more about its history from a guide. Opt for a bike or black cab tour, which includes the Monument, for quick and easy transfer, or enjoy the more immersive experience of a walking tour. Alternatively, hop-on hop-off services allow you to ascend the Doric column and admire its gilded urn, base inscriptions, and sweeping views at your own pace.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Monument is a must-see for anyone interested in London’s history.
  • Be prepared for a fair climb, as there are 311 steps to the Monument’s summit.
  • The viewing platform is not wheelchair accessible.
  • Some tours include admission; otherwise, there is a cash charge to enter the Monument.

How to Get There
Take advantage of tours offering round-trip transfer to skip the hassle of navigating London. Otherwise, Monument is the nearest underground stop, while London Bridge and Fenchurch Street are the nearest mainline stations. Several local and hop-on hop-off bus services stop nearby.

When to Get There
The imposing Monument is a sight to see any time of year, though the vistas it offers are particularly pleasing in spring and summer when the weather is clear—especially as later opening hours offer sunset views. The Monument is open daily, except December 24, 25, and 26.

Annus Mirabilis
It’s often said that there are three key dates in English history: 1066, 1666, and 1966. The middle date is often referred to as annus mirabilis, or year of miracles, in reference to John Dryden’s poem. This year saw the surprising defeat of the Dutch navy, as well as the Great Fire of London, which destroyed more than 10,000 properties but took the life of relatively few people. The Great Fire also led to improved building regulation and the beginning of the fire brigade.

Sizzling Southwark

Sizzling Southwark

As Southwark was London's 1st borough, it supplied the City of London with all its needs. For centuries it became the entertainment centre for the City's young men looking for a bit of fun - from inns and brothels to theatres and bear baiting, from beer to food, Southwark had it all. But Southwark was not just about supplying its wealthy neighbour: living side by side with Southwark's poor were the Bishops of Winchester living in their grand palace and supporting the magnificent St Saviour's church, as Southwark Cathedral was then known. Nowadays, there is so much to see: the soaring arches and dramatic ceilings of the cathedral; the ruins of the once lavish Winchester Palace, the glorious Globe theatre and the life sized replica of the Golden Hinde, the boat that circumnavigated the globe in the 1570s. Add to that the fascinating tales of Southwark's history, intriguing explanations of phrases like Winchester geese and the truly spectacular views across London, you have a great tour!

Private Harry Potter Walking Tour of London

star-5
We believe that Harry Potter changed the world. No book series before or since has had an impact on so many people, muggle and wizard alike. We know it changed our lives, it taught us to be brave in the face of evil, that no hero is perfect, and to stand by our friends. This magical Private Harry Potter Walking Tour Of London offers you the chance to see the filming locations from the Harry Potter film franchise, explore locations mentioned in the books, and learn more about the ‘boy who lived’ from a passionate Harry Potter fan. Along the way, I’ll explain what parts of London inspired J. K. Rowling, how these places were transfigured into the books, and how the Harry Potter films re-energised the British film industry. There will also be plenty of opportunities to re-enact scenes from the films as well as stops for selfies, pauses for photos, and the chance to learn a little bit more about London in general. This tour is perfect for Potterheads, Squibs, and even Muggles!
