There are a number of notable neighbourhoods either side of London Bridge that provide great accommodation within easy walking distance of the surrounding sights and attractions. The City of London is one of the famous financial centres of London, home to such institutions as the Bank of England, Royal Stock Exchange, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. As a result, this area tends to be popular both day and night with tourists and businesspeople, but can be a useful hub to help visitors find their way around the city. South of the river lie the neighbourhoods of London Bridge and Borough, quieter ‘high street’ areas featuring many name brand stores, pubs and restaurants.
For tourists and temporary residents, London can be pretty safe, especially compared to other major capital cities, however travellers are still advised to be aware of pickpockets, particularly in some of the busier pubs and bars. Shoreditch and Whitechapel may be hotspots for this type of crime, though fortunately there is plenty of nightlife closer to home to spare guests from commuting over to these areas.
Due to its position right in the heart of the city, the area surrounding Monument naturally benefits from a rich and interesting history, overlapping with many of the stories about wider London. Here then are some of our favourite facts about the area to entice and excite new visitors:
A relatively prime location in the centre of London, property prices around Monument do tend to be quite high when compared to some of the further-afield neighbourhoods. The price for a rental apartment can range from £700 to upwards of £2,000 monthly, making serviced accommodation an increasingly viable option for longer term travellers, particularly when taking into account the many benefits TheSqua.re offers to extended residential guests.
Day to day activities meanwhile can vary substantially in price. The cost of dining out of an evening can range from £15 for a meal for one at an inexpensive restaurant, to £55 for a three-course meal for two at a mid-range restaurant. This can be countered however by the relatively low price of local groceries and the fully-equipped kitchens TheSqua.re includes in every apartment. Weekly travel passes (for Zones 1-2) can run to upwards of £35, though there are several discounts available for eligible residents. Finally, there are plenty of entertainment options, including theatres and cinemas, that offer cheaper tickets with select membership schemes.

London benefits from a world-renowned public transport system, comprising the famous Underground, riverboat services, black cabs, and iconic red buses. Between them, residents are able to traverse the whole city with ease, and major overground terminals, such as Victoria, Waterloo, and Kings Cross, also open up more options for getting out and exploring the wider country. The area around Monument is served by a number of Tube stations: Monument (District and Circle Lines), Bank (Central, Northern and Waterloo & City Lines), Cannon Street (District, Circle and Mainline services), as well as London Fenchurch Street for National Rail routes. These stations are arguably the speediest and most efficient ways of travelling around the city, and Day Travelcards can be bought (accepted through Zones 1-5) for £18.10.
Black cabs and red buses meanwhile are both great ways of sightseeing while commuting, and with 700 bus routes in operation across the city, including 52 night services, travellers can be sure their serviced apartment is just a short journey away. There is nothing quite like sitting on the top deck of a London bus watching the city go by; equally, many of the city’s cab drivers can offer their own unique insights and local knowledge of the various neighbourhoods. Finally, TFL also offers riverboat services along the Thames, which depart from Tower Millennium Pier and consist of six routes (22 stops) running between Putney and Woolwich.
The UK is known for its generally unpredictable weather, and London is no exception. Though generally offering quite a temperate climate, the city can have rather cold winters, with temperatures dropping below freezing during the coldest months, and hot, balmy summers, with temperatures reaching up to thirty and above in July and August. Wet-weather gear is essential packing at all times of year though, as even in the summer months, rain may still be just a cloud away. September is an optimal month for visiting London, as day temperatures are still comfortably warm, while evenings are crisp and cool, allowing visitors to maximise their time away and make the most out of their daily activities.
