If you visit London, first of all should come to Big Ben. Not just to see this famous clock tower, but also around this place there are some interesting tourist sites. Big Ben is located in the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, London, United Kingdom. and are in the midst of London beside the River Thames.


Big Ben Clock artificially high and graceful. His voice sounded every 15 minutes. Fitting one hour with a distinctive bell sound. Big Ben's voice was once used as an icon in the BBC news broadcasts both radio and television.

Location of Big Ben easily accessible from anywhere around London and the UK. Two railway lines are very close to this tower is the Jubilee Line and District Line. So if you have entered the subway line is easy to reach all parts. The station with the Westminster parliament.

Big Ben clock tower was designed by architect Sir Charles Barry, who rebuilt the Palace of Westminster is now called the Houses of Parliament. Although Barry became the main architect of affairs but to build the tower was handed over to another architect, Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin. Not surprisingly, the tower called Big Ben reflects Pugin's work before like Scarisbrick Hall.
