Just to clarify, the part of the building that houses Big Ben is simply called the Clock Tower and is often erroneously referred to as St Stephen's Tower.

Great shot. When I was in London last September, my cab driver took great pleasure in asking me whether I knew what Big Ben was. I took great pleasure in knowing the right answer. :)

Must try and organise the tour to actually get up there and see the bell. Have you done it?

Me and my friends was quite lucky to get to reach at the top and it was wonderful, the bell weigh almost 14.33, won't be wrong to say it as giant bell.
