Big Ben

Big Ben

I forgot to mention that Big Ben has been undergoing some scheduled maintenance, so he has not been chiming the hours since I arrived. According to Londonist, all repairs are complete and the chimes are back. I’ll need to go down there again and listen for it.

Also, just so you know, the name Big Ben most correctly refers to the bell located within the Clock Tower of the Palace of Westminster, not the clock itself. So, you know, irritate people you know by correcting them when they make that mistake.
