  • Found this Obelisk whilst waking along the Thames. Pretty impressive with some interesting history behind it. Worth a minute of anyone's time. Would recommend.  more »
  • Nothing special but nice to see, free and close to the bank of the river so nice for photos and just viewing. The history of It is nicely written on it.  more »

  • Situated next to the Thames, this monument yields a sheltered little area to get away from the hustle and bustle of London streets. It’s perfect to occupy a bench and relax for half an hour. The history behind it is quite interesting too!
  • Impressive peice of history in plain sight. A gift from Egypt in 1819. A nice spot to take a break and have a rest by the Thames. If you enjoy history ir culture then this is a free monument for you to enjoy.
