Identified around the world as the number-one image of London, Big Ben has been prominently featured in many pop culture works. Nearly every British guide book's cover or travel magazine's articles on London has this structure as its pictorial image.
Depicted in numerous films, including Disney’s ‘Mary Poppins’ floating above it with her umbrella. Disney also had Peter Pan, Wendy and her brothers fly past also. Since the tower is attached to Britain’s Houses of Parliament, it was only natural that James Bond would appear nearby.
Big Ben took over 13 years to build with the clock tower standing at 316 ft high.The clock's official name is 'The Great Westminster Clock' and the clock is said to be accurate within one second. There is no elevator in the tower and to reach the top, it takes 334 steps to climb the 11 floors to the belfry.
No one really knows for certain as to where The Great Westminster Clock’s nickname of Big Ben actually came from, but Big Ben will be no more.
Now firmly entrenched in the memory of the world-over the, iconic symbol of London is having an official name change to Elizabeth Tower, in honor of the Queen of Britain’s Diamond Jubilee year.
