Big Ben is one of London’s most famous – and certainly most iconic – landmarks. Big Ben is the name of the bell inside of the clock positioned on the Houses of Parliament and the Elizabeth Tower.
Big Ben and the tower its housed in, was not part of the original design when the Houses of Parliament were built.
The original Palace of Westminster was destroyed by a devastating fire, in 1834. In 1835, a national competition was held in order to find the best possible design to replace the buildings, and to provide a proper building, or House, in which Parliament could convene. It was only then that the tower as it is known today, came to be. More than 400 entries were submitted by 90 architects. In the end, one Charles Barry reigned victorious, and a tower was built.
The task of installing a clock was assigned to Edmund Beckett Denison, originally a lawayer by trade. Together with a clockmaker named Edward Dent, Denison eventually installed the grand clock, and last but not least, Big Ben, in the famous tower.
