Big Ben, one of London’s most famous icons, is located in the tower of the Palace of Westminster which includes The Houses of Parliament, The House of Lords, The House of Commons and Westminster Hall.

Big Ben is actually the nickname of the 13 tonne bell situated at the top of the tower though it is often extended to include the clock and the clock tower. It is the World’s biggest four-faced chiming clock as well as the third-tallest free-standing clock tower.

Renowned for its dependability, London’s iconic clock ran accurately on time during heavy bombing during German’s Blitz even with two damaged clock faces. Big Ben is a popular icon for London and the UK. The image and the chimes are used by ITN’s News at Ten, ITV News bulletins, BBC Radio 4 and the BBC World Service. London’s historic clock of course, also plays a very important role during the New Year’s Eve countdown and celebrations when all eyes turn to the clock.
