    Whenever the words “Big Ben” are spoken, people all over the world think of the large clock in London near the Palace of Westminster where the English Parliament meets. In fact, Big Ben is the largest of the six bells of Westminster Palace in London. But it has long been associated with the name of the Clock Tower, which in September 2012 was officially called “Elizabeth Tower”. The decision to rename the tower was made by the British Parliament to mark the 60th anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II.The original palace of Westminster was destroyed by a fire in 1834 and the architect Charles Barry was asked to design a new one. However, he then asked Augustus Pugin for the design of the interior and the Clock Tower. The tower was completed in 1858.It is the largest four faced chiming clock in the world and, at a height of 96 metres, it is the third tallest free-standing clock tower.It is part of the heart of the English nation and the sound of the bells is featured each day on the BBC, both on the radio and television.Despite being one of the world's most famous tourist attractions, the interior of the tower is not open to overseas visitors, although United Kingdom residents can arrange tours through their Member of Parliament. However, the tower has no lift, so the visitors must climb the 334 limestone stairs to the top.
