    Big Ben is one of the iconic systems of London. It's next to the House of Lords and very close to the Thames. It's best view is from the other side of the river.

    A great landmark in London that i always like to see again when i visit London. There are higher towers, there are more beautiful towers, but this still manages to make an impression on me, even if i cannot single out the reason why i like this so much

    If you can get on a tour - do it! This is the physical incarnation of the life and times of Democracy: good, bad and indifferent but always important. Everything else is a footnote or a second-rate sequel!

    The famous clock tower is located just next to the houses of parliament. Good photo op with this in the background

    Amazing structure and detail. Parliament and Big Ben are a must see while in London. Check when you can go into Parliament though, they can have some crazy hours.

    Despite the weather and the ever cloud-covered city, i love this living place of history, art, culture with full of vibrance and diversity. Very well organized....only expensive. Yet, it's a place i will always keep coming back to. :o)

    First exposure was coming up from the underground and then "boom" right in front of us. Location is outstanding with immediate access to Parliment, Westminster, The Eye and of course the aquarium. Great stop with lots to see and do.

    I'll never get tired of seeing this iconic landmark. It's fun to bring a tripod, and take night shots of it, either from the green nearby adjacent to WEstminster Abbey, or from across the Thames. Lovely place!!

    Big Ben, the great bell tower at the Palace of Westminster. The name originally referred just to the bell itself, but evolved as a reference to the full tower. Although not open to visitors, and highly guarded, it really is beautiful.

    Big Ben is the Iconic symbol of London for centuries and it is great to behold to convince yourself you are actually here in London.

    It was just announced that Big Ben may change gender and become Queen Elizabeth or something of that sort. Not to honor Gay Pride week and Transgender's, or the many boarding schools that feed into that, but to honor England's longest sitting monarch, Queen Elizabeth the II.

    Ooh, what can I say about thsi one? Hmm! Well, if you are like me. Living in the South East of England, coming to London Town is a treat. Every weekend and the chance I got, I was in London. Seeing this massive istructures is a reminder how lucky I am to be here and experienced that moment. Which, many are not that fortunate to see this historical places.

    Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, and is generally extended to refer to the clock and the clock tower as well.
    Big Ben is one of the most famous sightseeings in London and it's really close to the metro station: Westminster.

    Famous across the world, this clock is an iconic image of the UK, best seen from Parliament Square or from across the river on the south bank

    Impressive! A true "gentleman" situated in the heart of London, protecting "The Eye" from the other side of Westminster Bridge!

    "Look kids, there's Big Ben!" Indeed, it's one of those places you need to see in your lifetime. You might be surprised how impressed you'll be. People often confuse Big Ben as being the name for the clock. It is actually the name of the bell inside. See... and you thought it would be boring! Silly humans... go enjoy!

    This is one place I loved the most as it was my alarm clock before I went to sleep and my alarm clock to waken me up. Its brill when you have no way of telling the time.

Description

Actually the name of the clock inside the tower, not the tower itself, Big Ben looms high above parliament and the River Thames. Impressive and iconic, non-citizens of the UK are not permitted to climb the tower-- enjoy it from across the river or from the top of the London Eye.
