Big Ben

More commonly referred Big Ben, The Elizabeth Tower is connected to The Palace of Westminster, looming over the River Thames in breath-taking style. Originally constructed in the 1030s, the medieval palace succumbed to a fire in 1834. This allowed the famous architects Charles Barry and Augustus Pugin to get to work creating the Gothic masterpiece we have today.

The world famous clock tower is a must see for any visitor to London. And the chimes of ‘Big Ben’ can be heard every hour for miles around. Join us for a tour to learn about its surprisingly gory past and its role in the UK’s Houses of Parliament.

You can marvel at Big Ben by foot or bike on our River Thames Bike Tour and River Thames Evening Bike Tour.
