There’s hardly another landmark more synonymous with London than the famous Big Ben. Whether you want to learn about the historic clock tower at the Houses of Parliament, or you just want the perfect selfie in the capital, the Big Ben is a must-see inclusion to every sightseeing trip to London.

Love trivia? Sharing fun facts about Big Ben will be the perfect entertainment on your family day out. Did you know that 2 giant bells cracked irreparably before the builders found the perfect design and composition for the current one? Or that the Elizabeth Tower is over 96m tall, with 334 steps to climb up to the belfry? Oh there’s plenty where this came from...

Fancy even more info about Big Ben and a look inside the tower? A guided tour of Elizabeth Tower would be perfect for you! However, you’ll need to wait till 2021 as these are currently unavailable, due to renovation works. Right now, it’s up to you to read up on history and tell the kids all about it on your trip!
