Big Ben (officially Elizabeth Tower since 2012) stands 97m tall and was completed in 1858-59. At the top is the clock with its four 7m-diameter dials and the 13t great hour bell, to which the name Big Ben refers, strictly speaking. The light above the clock is illuminated when the House of Commons is in session.
