Today’s feature concerns a place where I have visited in person. It was on this date in 1859 that the clock tower which houses Big Ben began ticking. Yes, I know that Big Ben is what the clock tower is often called, but that is wrong. Big Ben is actually the hour bell that chimes. The building is called the clock tower.
I had the privilege of spending 6 weeks in England a few years back, and when we were in London, we saw this firsthand. It is a beautiful structure, and it is one of London’s many landmarks that are well worth seeing.
