London: Eye & Big Ben

Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, and is often – incorrectly – extended to refer to the clock or the clock tower as well.
It is the largest four-faced chiming clock and the third-tallest free-standing clock tower in the world. It celebrated its 150th anniversary in May 2009, during which celebratory events took place. The clock first ticked on 31 May 1859.
