Bunker Hill Monument

Location: Monument Square, Boston



Built in commemoration of the conflicts between English forces and the local Patriots during the American Revolutionary War, the monument is one of Boston's most historic attractions. It is named after the Battle of Bunker Hill in June 1775 and the current granite statue, which stands at 221ft tall, was erected over a near-20 year period before being completed in 1842. To truly take in the breath-taking views over the city, visitors can take the 294 steps up to the top whilst a tour guide tells of the battle itself. An exhibition centre stands next to the monument where you can learn more about the history of this iconic structure.
