    London's Big Ben is not the 97,50 m (320 foot) high tower, but the bell in the tower, that forms part of the Houses of Parliament.

    Go to see Big Ben and try to be there at noon to hear the chimes.
    Then if the weather is good, hop on a boat and take a river cruise.

    London isn't always overcast and gloomy...as proven here by an early summer sunset which seemed to light up Big Ben here on fire...well, you know what I mean...:)

    Maybe the most spectacular building along the Thames. The clock tower 'Big Ben' is even more famous. Most people know the melody that counts the hours....
