  • Its a meeting place. The hustle and bustle of daily activity is truely a great experience. It changes from day to day with farmers markets to music events. Monument Metro is here so its so easy getting to and from other parts. The Monument itself is a sight to see. I sed to climb up all the internal tower stairs as a child. I wonder if it ever opens to the public now.
  • A truly iconic landmark in the city which is really useful considering it has one of the city's most important transport hubs underneath it in Monument Metro Station. If you get the opportunity to go to the top the view is amazing. Unfortunately, the viewing platform isn't regularly open to the public.
  • A great meeting point with quick access to the metro as well as a nice stroll to many activities if you don't want to look at the monument itself.
  • Very amazing monument which truly dominates the skyline. I can't stop looking up at it. It is very useful if you are looking to get on the metro as the station is below it.
  • Awesome Monument that's massive in size and surrounded by people and awesome stores and food places. Also pretty good for Pokemon Go. Also, check out the St George statue! =)
