Big Ben: London's Clock Tower
The clock tower looks spectacular at night when the four clock faces are illuminated.
•Each dial is 23 feet square (49.15 square metres)
•Big Ben's minute hands are 14 feet long (4.26 metres)
•The figures on the face of Big Ben are two feet high (0.6 metres)
A special light above the clock faces is also illuminated, letting the public know when parliament is in session.
Big Ben's timekeeping is strictly regulated by a stack of coins placed on the huge pendulum. Big Ben has rarely stopped. Even after a bomb destroyed the Commons chamber during the Second World War, the clock tower survived and Big Ben continued to strike the hours.
The chimes of Big Ben were first broadcast by the BBC on 31 December 1923, a tradition that continues to this day.
