The Perfectly Designed London Southwark Walk

The Perfectly Designed London Southwark Walk, London, England (B)

Today I am here to give you the perfectly designed London Southwark walk . The most efficient way to see:

We actually discovered this route by waking up on a Saturday morning and just…wandering. So follow the map or not, this is an amazing area of London to be in. No matter which way you turn there will be something historic, beautiful, yummy, groundbreaking, etc.

I let my dad be in charge of the plans, and he decided he wanted to see the Monument, which I’d never been to! We started out at the Monument underground station (pretty easy to remember, right?) and from there it’s a 30 second walk to the Monument to the Great Fire of London. And you can’t miss it, as it’s 62 meters tall. The Monument was originally built 1671-1677 as a memorial of the Great Fire of London in 1666.

For just £4 for adults or £2.70 for students, you can climb the very narrow spiral staircase 311 steps, right to the top! I’m not a fan of spiral staircases, at all, but the views were worth it! Even if it meant getting pelted by rain. You can find more information on prices and visiting hours here. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
