The Silence Of Big Ben

My husband and I live in Westminster, London so we often enjoy walking down by the river Thames. In the summer months we like to take in the continually changing views of the river while sitting near the Houses of Parliament.

Part of this iconic landmark is the Clock Tower, officially named the Elizabeth Tower, home to the Great Bell of the clock which is affectionately known as "Big Ben." This nickname is usually extended to refer to both the clock and the clock tower. Big Ben's quarterly chimes have become famous over the years and he has attracted tourists from across the globe to come and hear his song!
