Owner description: Elizabeth Tower is the name of the famous clock tower which stands at the Houses of Parliament. The name Big Ben is often used to describe the tower, the clock and the bell but the name was first given to the Great Bell. The Elizabeth Tower was completed in 1859 and the Great Clock started on 31 May. The Great Bell's strikes were heard for the first time on 11 July and the quarter bells first chimed on 7 September. All visits to Big Ben and the Elizabeth Tower tours are now suspended due to refurbishment with the last tour having taken place on 16 December 2016. Tours are scheduled to resume in early 2020 once the work is complete. Visitors can still book tickets for a number of other tours at the Houses of Parliament which take place on Saturdays throughout the year and on weekdays during Parliamentary recesses.

Out of all the places in the world London was not on the top of my list. This made it worth the trip. I loved this clock. I know it is just a clock, but you see it in so many movies and pictures, it is just nice to put it into perspective. This is a must see if you are in London.

Located on the Thames and very close to London icons, it is very worthwhile a visit to the area. A lovely walking trip to take in War Rooms, Houses of Parliament, London Eye, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace etc etc. Big Ben itself is imposing and lives up to its images
