Owner description: Temporarily Closed Elizabeth Tower is the name of the famous clock tower which stands at the Houses of Parliament. The name Big Ben is often used to describe the tower, the clock and the bell but the name was first given to the Great Bell. The Elizabeth Tower was completed in 1859 and the Great Clock started on 31 May. The Great Bell's strikes were heard for the first time on 11 July and the quarter bells first chimed on 7 September. All visits to Big Ben and the Elizabeth Tower tours are now suspended due to refurbishment with the last tour having taken place on 16 December 2016. Tours are scheduled to resume in early 2020 once the work is complete. Visitors can still book tickets for a number of other tours at the Houses of Parliament which take place on Saturdays throughout the year and on weekdays during Parliamentary recesses.

It is an experience to see it in person. Be aware of the crowd, you can't never be too careful with the crowd.

It's always amazing to see a world landmark in person. . I brought my kids for father's day weekend and they enjoyed it. One of them thought it was bigger. The nice thing is your able to see it from different angles and always a picture moment. I guess it's one of the those must see kind of places.

Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament situated on the River Thames are a must see. A brilliant sunny day. Off to Westminster Abbey after this to marvel at another beautiful piece of architecture.

Of course that isn't big as the name indicated, but is a very beautiful place, and represent the Britannic punctuality.
