Monument to the Great Fire of London

Standing nearby to the northern end of London Bridge is the Monument to the Great Fire of London, which is now referred to today as the Monument. Constructed between 1671 and 1677, it was built in commemoration of the Great Fire of London, which destroyed large parts of the city, and to celebrate the successful rebuilding of the capital.

A design collaboration between Sir Christopher Wren and Dr Robert Hooke, it is made of Portland stone and stands only a couple of hundred feet away from the bakers shop in Pudding Lane where the great fire first started. The monument is 202 feet tall and has become one of the most famous icons in this proud old city.
