The Big Ben clock, London

Big Ben

Located at the heart of the bustling capital of England, the famous Big Ben is one of the most popular and visited attractions of London, and it is definetely a mandatory stop if you are planning to travel to London.
World renowned for being, with The Houses of Parliament, the city’s most famous landmarks, it is one of the most spectacular monuments of the city, especially at night when the four faces of the clock are illuminated. One of the things that make this clock so famous it is accuracy, since it has rarely stopped since its construction.

It is said that even when a bomb destroyed part of the city during the Second World War, the clock kept striking the hours as every day.

If you are staying in your hotel in London and you want to know more about the history and origins of this symbolic monument, we also recommend you to visit the Whitechapel Bell Foundry and The Houses of Parliament. Unfortunately, the interior of the Big Ben is not opened to the public.

There are loads of replicas of the Big Ben all around the world, which give you an idea of its symbolic importance. Near Victoria Station, in London, there is one of them which is known as Little Ben, but there are many more in other parts of the world, such as Paris or Canada.

The area that surrounds the Big Ben and Westminster Palace, which is the seat of the British Parliament is one of the most spectacular ones of London. The River Thames or the Eye of London, as well as the legendary London Bridge or the Tower Bridge can also be found within this part of the city, where some of the most exclusive hotels are placed.
