It’s a fascinating piece of architecture with an equally as fascinating history.
Read about the history and design/structure here.
To celebrate this historic day, consider doing the following…
- Download the Big Ben application for your iPod/iPhone. (Free for the next 48 hours)
- Take a virtual tour of the Clock Tower. Full screen mode is pretty cool. (Only UK residents can actually do it.)
- Download a Big Ben Screensaver.
- Check out the neighbourhood in Google Earth. Make sure to turn on 3D images.

First comment indicated that Google.co.uk had a doodle to celebrate but unfortunately it didn’t appear in the comment. I’ve embedded it here. As you can see, it’s very nicely done.
