Iconic BIG Ben - a "must do"

The clock tower just soars above other edifices in the area. The best part is when it chimes on the hour. Be there with your videocam when that happens. It's really cool! read full review

    Did you know that the first 61 meters of Big Ben are made up of brickwork and stone and the remainder of tower is made from cast iron?

    Olha só quem esteve por aqui, o "gatinho" Rodrigo Faro! E ele não foi lá pra dançar não, hahaha. Faro acompanhou as Olimpíadas 2012 e trabalhou bastante. E delííícia!!!

    Designed by architect Charles Barry as part of the Palace of Westminster, The Clock Tower was completed in 1859.
