The clock tower at London’s Houses of Parliament is officially called the Elizabeth Tower. Big Ben is often used to describe the Great Bell and the Great Clock; however, the name was first used for the Great Bell. The Great Clock started on May 31, 1859, and the Great Bell was first heard on July 11 the same year. All tours of Big Ben and the Elizabeth Tower have been suspended until early 2020 for repairs and refurbishments. Visitors can still buy tickets to tour the Houses of Parliament during recesses, watch debates from the public galleries when the Houses are sitting or view Westminster Hall. Kick off your London trip with a visit to Big Ben, the massive clock located at the north end of the Westminster Palace.
