One of the world’s most famous landmarks, and an internationally-recognised symbol of London, Big Ben.
the 96 metre-high clock tower which sits at the north end of the Houses of Parliament ,was constructed in the mid-19th century in honour of Queen Victoria, (the reigning monarch at the time). Sitting proudly overlooking the River Thames, in the heart of Westminster, Central London bustling political hub, the clock is a truly striking and iconic sight, and is a must-see for anyone visiting the city for the first time!
From Big Ben to Buckingham Palace and Downing Street to Trafalgar, experience London’s most iconic landmarks on a 3-hour walking tour of Westminster, followed by a sightseeing cruise along the River Thames where you will spot a host of other world-famous landmarks, before finally, disembarking at Tower Pier, for an in-depth guided tour of the Tower of London!
Yes, however, due to refurbishments, tours are currently suspended.
London is a great year-round destination, though you may want to avoid the peak summer months of July and August as attractions are extremely busy and prices are higher than average.
Westminster (Jubilee, District and Circle lines) is the closest tube station ,situated just yards from Big Ben.
There are a host of iconic landmarks and sights within ten minutes walk of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, including Westminster Abbey; Trafalgar Square; The London Eye and Downing Street, while Buckingham Palace can also be reached on foot in under 20 minutes.
