UK ~ Houses of Parliament - Big Ben ~

....What kind of postcard should you send from London when named Ben.... of course one with a view of the famous " Big Ben " (◕‿-) Bedankt Ben!

The Houses of Parliament, also known as the Palace of Westminster, is the seat of the two parliamentary houses of the United Kingdom: the House of Lords and the House of Commons.

The most famous part of Charles Barry's design is the elegant clock tower. Originally called St. Stephen's Tower, it was soon named after the tower's largest bell, the Big Ben. A light at the top of the tower is illuminated when Parliament is sitting at night.
