Today we were at the Bridgestreet and saw the famous Big Ben. Did you know that Big Ben is officially named Great clock of west minister. It´s really tall, about 96,3 meter high. The clock was mold in 1856 and was introduced 1859. They renamed Big Ben in 2012 to Elisabeth Tower, in a tribute to queen Elizabeth.
The clock is built in five diffrent clocks. The biggest one is the one we can se on the Big Ben. The four smaller watches strike every full and half hour, quarter to and quarter past. They are playing in diffrent tones and multi-stroks so the people know what time it is just by hearing the sound.
Big Ben has not only become known for London, people are also picturing it when they are thinking of the Uk.
London has many symbols, they have the Routemasterbuss, Hackney carriage and the most famous is the Big Ben.
Here are some pictures
If you are wondering why we don´t post photos of ourself, it´s because we don´t want pictures that we are on in the internet.
