Big Ben

Esse é o Big Ben in London, famoso ícone internacional.

Big Ben é o nome do sino do famoso relógio (Clock Tower) no Parlamento Inglês. O nome foi dado em homenagem a Benjamin Hall, ministro de Obras Públicas da Inglaterra em 1859.


Westminster Underground station is opposite Big Ben. The District, Circle and Jubilee Lines all service the station. The Underground station was redeveloped recently and is much more roomy, airy and modern than the typical Underground station.

Also by Big Ben is Westminster Pier, where scheduled river boats ply the River Thames. Most popular/frequent route is to the Tower of London, but you can go as far as Hampton Court during the summer months.The very popular hop on, hop off London tour buses of course also stop at Big Ben. They do a circuit where you can get very good pictures/views from the opposite side of the river.
Ouça as badaladas do Big Ben!
