At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

From 16th December 2016, for a period of 3 years, the clock and the Elizabeth Tower will be closed for restoration work. No visitors will be admitted during this time.

Description

National symbol.

Big Ben is in fact the name of the large bell (or Great Bell) located in the Clock Tower at Westminster Palace, seat of the British Parliament. However, it is more often than not the whole tower which is affectionately referred to as Big Ben. The most famous clock in the world is also a national symbol of the United Kingdom.

Visiting Big Ben takes you behind the scenes of the tower, where you can see the technical mechanisms and learn all about the famous historical figures who contributed to the design and construction of this legendary clock.

Gradually, as you discover the different rooms, you will climb up to the top of the tower, eventually entering the area housing the clock and its bells, and finally you will be rewarded with a splendid view of the Thames and all across London.
