Which London fixture is officially named "Big Ben"?
If you’ve ever been to London, you’ve undoubtedly seen the giant clock tower at the corner of the Palace of Westminster. Contrary to popular belief, the clock tower itself is not named “Big Ben”. "Big Ben" is actually the name of just the bell inside. The clock is named the Great Clock of Westminster, and the tower is named the Elizabeth Tower. It was renamed the “Elizabeth Tower”, in 2012 in honor of Queen Elizabeth II. The name of the great bell inside the tower has morphed over time into many calling the entire structure “Big Ben”.
