Monument lies in the heart of the city of London and is home to both business and tourism. The area is named after the Monument to the Great Fire of London. The monument, designed by Sir Christopher Wren and Robert Hooke was erected in 1677. It stands 202 feet from the source of the Great Fire, on Pudding Lane, and is 202 feet tall to reflect that distance. There is a platform just beneath the golden urn of fire that tops the column, which is open to the public and offers a panoramic view of the city to anyone prepared to climb the 311 steps to reach it. From this vantage point it is possible to see the Shard, HMS Belfast, the Gherkin, and the abundance of commercial, retail and office space Monument has to offer.
