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 ... Read more
climb the tower-- enjoy it from across the river or from the top of the London Eye.

Out of all the landmarks in the world, Big Ben is one that won't disappoint. It looks exactly like it does in the pictures. You can get some great photos atop the pedestrian bridge as you approach the landmark (even better when you can catch a red double decker bus whizzing by in the background)! As striking in the daytime as it is at night, no visit to London is complete without taking a gander at this building.

Amazing experience just to walk or drive by. Located by the Thames River, this clock stands tall in all its beauty.

Big Ben is definitely the number one thing to do as a tourist. It is fairly anticlimactic, but if you have a limited amount of time to spend on a layover, take the tube to see it. It takes significantly less time than you would expect.

Big Ben is a "must see" in London. Possibly a good idea to combine seeing this famous clock along with a tour of Parliament. Westminster Abbey is close by with all the famous people commemorated within.

London is thus far my favorite city! There are so many things to do and so many places to eat. I really like the culture and it makes it that much more comfortable that I am abroad but English is the common language. I really liked all the shops in Chinatown, as well as shopping in general. Can't wait to go back!

I really enjoyed watching the sunlight seep through the rain clouds over Big Ben. The most beautiful shot you can get of the Big Ben is on top on the London eye as you tower over England. By far one of the coolest experiences of my life.

As iconic a sight in London as there is, Big Ben is one of the worlds most famous landmarks. You cannot visit London without visiting.

It's really just a bell tower. Nay, the bell is actually called big ben, not the whole thing.

Seeing Big Ben is probably a must for people when they come to London. It's very iconic! It's very stately and worth the visit for a photo opp!

It's worth a picture but is not that interesting. I wouldn't make a detour but if you are on Whitehall or the South Bank then pop across.

If you happen to be wandering around Westminster on a Saturday or Sunday, odds are you might get caught up in a rally, about practically anything. I had quite the experience last weekend when a housing rally bombarded the streets of Parliament. The best strategy: join them. Soon I was holding a "Housing for all; people before profit" banner.

Big Ben is the most famous clock in the world. It is a wonderful architectural landmark too.

Not much excitement here, but it is cool to see that thing in person that's you seen in pictures or movies so many times.

One of my best memories on my trip to London was stepping out of the underground and onto the street, with Big Ben looming over! Quite impressive area.

An historic clock- at the very least, go past it on the no.24 bus which is as good way for doing a tour of London but for £1.40!
