Tour of the Westminster Clocktower (alias "Big Ben")

Discussion in 'Travel & The Great Outdoors' started by thingy, Aug 7, 2008.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I apologise for being pedantic (even more so if I'm wrong), but I thought Big Ben was the name of the bell, not the clock? Might be wrong, it has been known of before!
  2. That's why I put "Big Ben" as alias: most people asking about tours call it Big Ben. It is the name of the largest bell. There are a number of others, which you can stand underneath as they DONG. Well done for knowing it though. Have a wet on me. :thumright:
  3. Thanks for the tip off Thingy,I really enjoyed the tour.Very interesting.
  4. Can't do that I'm afraid, I'm already going deaf (bloody aircraft). I SAID I CAN'T DO THAT, I'M ALREADY GOING DEAF.

    Will have a beer though, it is a day ending in Y afterall. :w00t:
  5. Thanks to Thingy me and erself ave been there and done it. Stood next to Big Ben(Yes the bell) at 12 noon, about 1 metre away. Can assure you it will not make you deaf, but if you hold onto a part of the building you may find the vibrations very exciting.

    If you can it is a must do before you kick the bucket.
