Relax – in The Keeper’s Lodge
The Keeper’s Lodge in the ground floor of The Monument has been refurbished – creating a comfortable corner where visitors can relax. Originally part of the accommodation provided for the caretaker (who was appointed as the ‘keeper’ when the Monument opened in 1869), it is ideal for any visitors who are unable to climb the stairs within the Monument, and refreshments and snacks are available.

A new audio tour is now available for visitors to the Monument – with a commentary in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish, describing all of the building’s features and highlights. Handsets are available for hire (£2) at the Reception Desk in the ground floor area of the Monument.
