London has so many wonderful sights and attractions and is a great place to visit. A visit to Tower Bridge and The Monument to the Great Fire of London is a must if you are looking for an enjoyable day out in the capital.
Tower Bridge is currently celebrating its 125th Anniversary as it was officially opened on 30th June 1894 by the Prince and Princess of Wales (The future King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra).

Tower Bridge is a great day out. I visited with my family and we loved learning about the history of Tower Bridge. We also loved walking over the glass floor and took plenty of photos there!
The Monument to the Great Fire of London is also another great place to visit and stands at the junction of Monument Street and Fish Street. This Monument is one of the City of London’s most outstanding visitor attractions. It is a 202ft column that remembers the Great Fire of London and celebrates the City which rose from the ashes after the fire. Visitors can climb the 311 spiral steps and enjoy the wonderful panoramic views of London.
