Big Ben is a massive icon for British culture and is one of the most famous landmarks in London. When the construction of Big Ben was completed in 1859, its’ clock was the largest and most accurate four faced striking and chiming clock in the world. It is easily one of the most prominent symbols of the United Kingdom and parliament democracy. In August 2017, renovation works began on the tower and are not expected to be completed until 2020. This means that Big Ben will be silent except for some important dates such as New Year’s Eve and Remembrance Sunday. Big Ben is still a massive attraction for people visiting London and it can be located at Westminster near The Houses of Parliament.
