The Big Ben is a turret clock structure at the north-eastern end of the House of Parliament building in Westminster, London, England. It is one of London’s best-known land-marks, and looks most spectacular at the night when the clock faces are illuminated.

The name Big Ben actually refers not to the clock-tower itself but to the thirteen ton bell hung within. The bell was named after the first commissioner of works, Sir Benjamin Hall. The four clock faces are 55 metres (180 feet) above ground.

The minute hand of the Big Ben is 14 feet long and the figures are 2 feet high. Minutely regulated with a stack of coins placed on the huge pendulum. Big Ben is excellent timekeeper, which has rarely stopped.
