Additional Information

Introduction

Big Ben is located to the north of London's Collegiate Church of St. Peter in Westminster atop a 98-meter-tall clock tower. The clock face is brightly illuminated whenever the Houses of Parliament are in session. The giant clock represents England's classic culture. It is a landmark of the City of London and a source of pride for the people of England. Whenever London is used as the setting for a film, you can be absolutely certain to catch a glimpse of Big Ben. Although it is commonly known as Big Ben, the clock tower was renamed Elizabeth Tower in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
