Big Ben, London: 148 reviews and 224 photos
Located here on the River Thames is the famous icon of London, the Clock Tower of Westminster Palace (most commonly known as “Big Ben”). The 96-m (316-ft) tall Gothic Revival tower was built between 1840-1860 following the 1834 fire which destroyed most of the original Westminster Palace. There are four large clock faces and five large bells which chime their tune every 15 minutes. The name Big Ben was derived from the largest of these bells, the 13 tonne Great Bell of Westminster.
