Big Ben is, of course, another London icon. The largest clock in Britian, the name "Big Ben" actually refers to bell inside the clock, not the clock itself. But for our purposes here, we'll refer to the clock too as Big Ben.

It's generally one of the most accurate clocks in the world, but Big Ben's had it's share of problems at times. For example, it stopped twice one day in May 1997, possible because of excessive heat in London.

I remember that day. It felt like time was standing still for while.

Address: Westminster, London SW1A 0AA
Directions: It's the northest end of the Houses of Parliament building in Westminster. Take the Westminster tube stop.
