About Big Ben

Big Ben is famous the world over for being the giant four faced clock in London, England, but infact its not the name of the clock at all. Big Ben is the name of the giant 14-tonne bell that hangs inside the clock tower and chimes every hour of every day in England. The huge bell was hung in 1858 and named after Sir Benjamin Hall, Chief Commissioner of Works at the time the bell was hung. The bell is the second giant bell to be hung, the first one became cracked during a test ringing. However, the present bell also has a slight crack. Big Ben is the largest clock in Britain and has kept exact time for the nation since May 1859. It has four 23ft (7.5m) dials (one on each face) and the minute hand is 14ft long and made of hollow copper for lightness. In England you can hear Big Ben chiming daily the nation over, either on television news or radio.
