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.

Description

Watching over the Thames.

Big Ben is one of London's best known and most defining landmarks. A major attraction, the neo-Gothic style clock tower is recognised around the world. But did you know that the name Big Ben refers only to the giant bell which chimes the hours? The clock tower itself stands at 99,98 metres tall and Big Ben is housed within it. The bell is 4.25 metres wide and weighs a staggering 14.5 metric tons. The tower, which dates from 1859, is part of the complex of Westminster Palace, the Houses of Parliament, and the seat of the British government.
