  Big Ben
by littlesam1

Every tourist who goes to London is obligated to take a picture of Big Ben. I know I had to have one. And I have seen so many VT pages with pictures of Big Ben. But I felt obligated to add one of my own.

Although I have seen hundreds of pictures of Big Ben and have seen it in movies, on television and in commercials I still was not prepared for the actual size and beauty of the tower and clock. Its really overwhelming when you get that first look at the famous Big Ben.

Just over to the left in the background is the London Eye. We did not get the opportunity to ride on the London Eye during our trip.

    I assume you now know that it is not a photo of Big Ben as Big Ben is the bell inside the tower
