Another trip up the London Monument Tower (photo feature)

London Nocturne bike races, Smithfield Market, central London, Saturday June 11th 2011

I posted a feature about the Monument tower back in May, but after unexpectedly finding myself traipsing back up the 311 steps to the windy viewing platform again recently, I’ve posted up some new photos for your delectation.

This time around it was a lot busier, although I noted that the interior looked a lot tidier since my last visit – the result of a £4.5 million refurbishment project that started in July 2007 and was completed in February 2009.

The view from the top was as magnificent as ever.
