Big Ben is the name of the clock inside the famous tower that also forms part of the Houses of Parliament. Its impressive mechanism weighs in at over 13.5 tons, and the pendulum, which beats once every two seconds, is 13 feet long and weighs 690 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.

Really just a big clock. a little over-rated, but easy to find.
Best viewed when not foggy or rainy, which is actually quite rarely.
also boring just going to watch a clock....

Big Ben is not as big as the average tourists my think if you haven't really researched the area you might pass it without realising that it's "Big Ben".
Still worth a visit but try not to be dissappointed when you see it.
After so many years Big Ben is still \"modern\". I visited on September 2003. It was unusual for that part of the year, sunny, many caind people on the streets. After half a year in USA it looks like another world!?
