Our guide to London: Big Ben

Of all the attractions in London, Big Ben epitomizes the culture of the capital.

You’ll find Big Ben in Westminster, right in the heart London. The attraction is amongst countless other sightseeing attractions, including Buckingham Palace, 10 Downing Street, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye, all located within walking distance of one another.

Something quite as iconic as the clock tower cannot be missed and what better way to experience London than a London Sightseeing Tour Bus?

The tour buses pass some of the most popular landmarks of the capital, one of the main ones being Big Ben or the Queen Elizabeth II Tower (as it’s officially named). Big Ben is definitively a major attraction in London, in fact, it has been referred to as the most recognised clock, in the world!

Standing at 315ft, the Queen Elizabeth II Tower, which homes Big Ben (Big Ben is actually the nickname given to the Great Bell), is renowned for its iconic architecture and chime. The tower is also illuminated in periods of darkness, making it one of the focal points of the capital.

If you plan to visit Big Ben, we recommend you arrange a tour prior to your visit, especially if you want to avoid disappointment!
