Elizabeth Tower (Big Ben)

Bridge Street
London, SW1A 0AA
+44 20 7219 3000
Big Ben is the name of the clock inside the famous tower that also forms part of the Houses of Parliament, but also extends to the entire structure that was renamed Elizabeth Tower in 2012. Its impressive mechanism weighs in at over 5 tons, and the pendulum, which beats once every two seconds, weighs 203 kilograms (447.53 pounds). The clock was named Big Ben after the First Commissioner of Works, and since 1885 a light above it has been lit while the House of Commons is in session. Residents can schedule a time to climb the clock tower. Unfortunately, non-citizens are not permitted to climb the clock tower.
