    Visit the Houses of Parliament - or, more properly, the Palace of Westminster.
    The seat of British government for centuries.

    I think most people know by know that Big Ben actually refers to the bell inside of the tower. Big Ben and the Houses of Parliement are great London icons and really shouldn't be missed.

    Take a minute to photograph this beautiful gothic structure which houses Big Ben, the world famous bell. Also visit Wetminster Abbey while you're here.

    There was a really long queue to get in, and I didn't feel like waiting. If you fancy seeing the interior of the building get there early!

    This large clock is one of London's most famous landmarks. I'm not entirely sure if you're allowed to enter it, but at least have your picture taken in front of it!

    I highly recommend going into the strangers gallery or visitors gallery and watching for a while, if that kind of thing doesn't bore you too too much. I found it to be extremely interesting.

    Big Ben is the clock tower on the houses of parliament (i think?) All you really do is look at it and take a picture, but hey, you gotta do it.

    Built in 1858/9 the bell was named after one Sir Benjamin Hall and when it was cast it was Britain’s heaviest bell.
