Time for some repairs………Big Ben will be silent for several months!

What an iconic Landmark and probably the most famous clock in the world, Big Ben.

Big Ben is the giant bell in the belfry of the Elizabeth Tower at the Palace of Westminster, which has been overlooking our Capital City of London, for over 151 years, and has become a very popular tourist site.

Cast at Whitechapel Bell Foundry on the 10th April 1858, the famous clock is now in need of some repairs due to cracks in the masonry and corrosion to the cast iron roof, so whilst the construction and mechanical works are to be carried out, there will be no more chimes during this period.  So at 12.00pm on the 21st August there will be no more dongs……..!!!!!
