25 Stunning Images of Spiral Staircases

Written by


There’s something about the spiral that captures our eye. Sometimes it’s the symmetry, sometimes they just make us dizzy. A practical designer might use one to save space while others may use them because of the beautiful patterns they create. Whatever the appeal, people love spiral staircases and I am one of them!

The Monument was built in 1671 to commemorate the Great Fire of London (1666) which left much of the city in ruins after a fire broke out at a local bakery on Pudding Lane. The column is the tallest isolated stone column in the world at 61.5m. At the top of the tower is a gilded urn of fire. You can climb the 311 step spiral staircase in the center of the column to reach a viewing platform.
