As you probably know, The Monument London was built to commemorate the Great Fire of London and celebrate the City’s recovery from the terrible event. 2016 sees a year-long celebration of the Great Fire 350th Anniversary, and staff at The Monument have taken extra steps to make sure the anniversary was celebrated as it should be. Offering free entry to The Monument for a whole weekend, some fun competitions to get involved with, free talks and much more, the Great Fire 350th Anniversary was marked with heartfelt respect from everyone who attended.
Following on from the Great Fire 350th Anniversary, The Monument is continuing to provide a brilliant attraction for all, admitting visitors to climb the tower and see the sights every day until 5.00pm. In fact, the only days you’ll ever find The Monument London is closed is from Christmas Eve until Boxing Day, so don’t forget to book your tickets when you’re planning your visits to top attractions London this autumn – you won’t regret it!
