Where: Monument – Monument Street London
So it's the View from the Shard currently stealing all the "London view" headlines, but what kind of history does it have? Well, apart from Romeo the Fox, its former inhabitant, it has none.
A tower with oodles of history – built to commemorate those lost during the Great Fire – is the Monument. Now that’s a spiral staircase that you HAVE to climb...
Great views, great fun and you even get to take home a certificate that proclaims, ’I climbed the Monument’.
