Create an itinerary including Big Ben
If you could only choose one icon to represent Great Britain, Big Ben would have to merit strong consideration. The name commonly describes the clock tower at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, but the title originally went to the bell inside the tower. The official name of the tower is Elizabeth Tower. UK residents can take a tour of the tower, going all the way to the top for spectacular views of London. If you're a foreign visitor, you'll have to be content with snapping photos from the ground. The clock tower is photogenic at any time of day, but even more so when it's lit up at dusk. Use our London travel website to add Big Ben and other attractions to your London vacation plans.

  • If you're in London, you have to visit Big Ben and hear the bells ring. After the refurbishment, it looks even more impressive. It was clearly worth the effort to bring it back to it's former glory...

  • What a classic structure made during 1860s. View from London eye is also worth viewing. There are many other tourist attractions near this place, which is definitely gonna take your day, and still you may want to come here again. Amazing tourist attraction in London. Vibes are great here 😁 You can easily reach here through train. Westminster or Embankment is the nearest station.
  • Majestic, huge, historic and elegant at the same time. A beautifully-looking building. Unfortunately it's still closed, but just by looking at it, taking photos from every angle possible is so much fun. If you are visiting London, it's a must-see attraction.
