A link to Palace of Westminster was e-mailed
Few buildings and monuments symbolize an entire nation quite like London’s Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster. Westminster has housed the British Parliament for nearly 1,000 years. Royals, including Prince William, have historically wed in the Abbey. The clock tower, nicknamed Big Ben for its massive bell, has been keeping time with its 9-foot-long hour and 14-foot-long minute hands since 1859.
