The BIG BEN is normaly only the name of the bell but the English people used it to talk about the whole Tower. Since 1859 (eighteen fifty-nine) it is the bell of the BIG BEN which at

midnight the 31 (thirty-first) December announce that it is the new year. In order to avoid the terrorist attack the Towe is closed to the foreign visitors.

The BIG BEN has become over time a symbole of London and of Ingland.

To conclued: I real like the BIG BEN, its design and the way it is build are really beautiful. It is sad that the foreign visitors can not visited but we can understand, why because it

would be very sad that this building will be destroyed.

This building is very important because of it political important of his cultural meaning and also because of it location and it is a symbole for the English people.

Thanks for listening !
