  Big Ben keeps the time as the sun goes down
by AKtravelers

The clock tower on the Houses of Parliament is probably the most famous of London's many famous architectural landmarks. Of course, most people know it as Big Ben, but, in fact, it's only the bell inside the clock tower that technically enjoys that moniker. But who really cares. I say call the whole thing Big Ben if you want. Just ensure that you spend enough time looking at it and listining to the bell toll to assure your senses that you are truly in London.
