Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster

By Monday, September 09, 2013 , , ,

Big Ben is actually just the clock. The tower it's in is the Elizabeth Tower and the building is the Palace of West Minster.

I mentioned in an earlier post that legend has it that when Big Ben strikes 13 times, the lions in Trafalgar Square will wake up and dance. Nearby the Elizabeth Tower is a pretty neat monument to Queen Boudicca, which I'll post about soon.
