Big Ben

Bridge Street. (Open Map)


The world renowned city symbol

You cannot avoid seeing the Big Ben (officially named Elizabeth Tower) when in London. The great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster dominates the city, and it can be literally seen from any location. Big Ben is the third-tallest free-standing clock tower in the world.

The Big Ben was once also the largest four-faced clock in the world, but it has been recently outdone by the Allen-Bradley Clock Tower in Milwaukee.
