An instantly recognizable symbol of London, you can spy Big Ben from any number of vantage points in the city. It's truly magical if you're standing right there when you hear the clock's chime

Really famous landmark in London you can't go to London without visiting such buildings as the Big Ben and it overlooks the River Thames which is a spectacular sight , especially in at night

The climb of the Elizabeth Tower to Big Ben was was one of the best tours I have ever taken in London. Book about 6 months in advance via your local MP

One of the most popular attractions in London, definitely worth visiting! Do take a walk along Westminster Bridge to get a nice view on the clock tower as well as the adjacent Palace of Westminster.

The real name is “The Clock Tower”. Big Ben is just the nickname given to the largest bell in the tower, formally known as “Great Bell”. However, “Big Ben” has become much more commonly used. (FACT)

A must see when you are in London, easily accessible from Westminster tube station. Westminster Bridge is next to the tower and you can see London Eye from across. very nice place for a photo :)
