Visitor Information

The monument is sited on the Victoria Embankment (north bank of the Thames) about 200 metres from Westminster bridge. It is almost directly opposite the Millennium Wheel (the huge London Eye Ferris wheel) which is on the south bank of the Thames. The monument is open 24 hours per day. There is lighting on the monument so it is still viewable at night. See map below for details.
