The Clock Tower of the Palace of Westminster, commonly known as the Big Ben, is one of London's most famous landmarks.
The name Big Ben actually refers to the clock's hour bell, the largest of the clock's five bells, the others being used as quarter bells.
There were two bells cast as the clock tower's hour bell. A first, a 16 ton weighing bell was cast by John Warner and Sons in 1856. Since the Clock Tower was not yet completed, the bell was hung temporarily in the Palace Yard. The bell soon cracked so it was recast in 1858 in the Whitechapel Bell Foundry as a 13.5 ton bell. Unfortunately soon after this bell was placed in the belfry in July 1859, it cracked as well. This time, instead of yet again recasting the bell, the crack was repaired and a lighter hammer was used to prevent any more cracks.

  2. 2. Din anul 185 9 unul dintre turnurile Parlamentului adăposteşte cel mai cunoscut simbol al Londrei, ceasul pe care unii îl numesc Big Ben, spunănd că numele lui vine de la Benjamin Hall, cel care a condus lucrările de construcţie a clădirii De fapt Big Ben este numele clopotului de 13,5 tone care bate la fiecare oră. There were two bells cast as the clock tower's hour bell. A first, a 16 ton weighing bell was cast by John Warner and Sons in 1856.

  3. 4. Turnul are 96 metri î n ălţime şi construc ţ ia lui a î nceput î n anul încoronării reginei Victoria Cu cei 7,5 metri diametru şi lungimea minutarului de 4,25 m ceasul este cel mai mare din Anglia Bătăile lui sunt transmise zilnic la postul de radio BBC The bottom 61 metres (200 ft) of the Clock Tower's structure consists of brickwork with sand coloured Anston limestone cladding. The remainder of the tower's height is a framed spire of cast iron. The four clock dials are 55 metres (180 ft) above ground. The clock and dials were designed by Augustus Pugin. The clock dials are set in an iron frame 7 metres (23 ft) in diameter, supporting 312 pieces of opal glass, rather like a stained-glass window. Some of the glass pieces may be removed for inspection of the hands. The surround of the dials is gilded. At the base of each clock dial in gilt letters is the Latin inscription: “ DOMINE SALVAM FAC REGINAM NOSTRAM VICTORIAM PRIMAM” Which means O Lord, keep safe our Queen Victoria the First.
