We love the lighting in this golden photo of The Monument by atmilinko. Did you know that you can climb all the way up to the top of the Monument and see the views over the City of London?

The Monument was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and celebrated the rebuilding of London after the great fire in 1666.

If you’ve taken a great photo showing London’s rich history, please share your photo with the Visit London Flickr group.


  1. Great picture. I don’t think I have ever seen the monument look so inviting before. I usually walk by and hardly notice it sometimes as it is rather sandwiched between lots of other buildings.
