Big Ben is a hallmark not only for London, but for the entire United Kingdom! It is the world’s biggest four-faceted clock, reaching up to 96 meters in height. It has been standing in the heart of the city for decades, giving thousands of people the opportunity to admire it daily. The Parliament buildings frame up the Big Ben Tower and make it look even more glorious and impressive, while the golden touches at the top of it add to its overall prestige! It’s the equivalent of what the Eiffel Tower is to France and the Colosseum to Italy. Unfortunately, you will not be able to admire it from the inside*, but you can wonder at its beauty and take pictures of it from any possible angle, any time of day!
Suggested visit time: 1-1.5 hours
Open: Always *Tours in Big Ben’s interior for locals only
The know it all says: When Big Ben strikes, it can be heard from even 9 miles away!
