London: Big Ben

I am so sorry, but I just can't resist to post this classical view of the Big Ben as my first photo from London.
Of course Big Ben is actually a nickname, firstly for the great bell of the clock, but secondly also for the Clock Tower itself. It is part of the Palace of Westminster or Houses of Parliament, located on the north bank of the River Thames in the London borough of the City of Westminster.
The tower is designed by Augustus Pugin in Gothic Rivival style and is 315.9ft/96.3m high and celebrates its 150th birthday this year.

I hope you like this photo and thanks for your visit. :-)
