Big Ben's Clock Tower
Although the name "Big Ben" is commonly used to describe the tower, the clock and the bell the name was actually given to the Great Bell. The tower is officially known simply as "The Clock Tower" (LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) Parliament.UK)

The clock tower holds the largest four-faced chiming clock in the world and is the third-tallest free-standing clock tower. Completed in 1859, the tower has become one of the most recognisable icons for both London and Great Britain.
