Getting a look at big Ben and Elizabeth tower were definitely on my list of things to do while I was in London! It is definitely one of the most iconic structures in the city, and no tourist would feel like they had really seen London if they somehow missed it. I probably ended up seeing a dozen times because I felt like every time I turned the corner there it was again! Fun fact, big Ben and the liberty Bell were made by Whitechapel Bell Foundry, and both cracked the first time they were rung. I'm not sure if they're still in business all these years later, but I hope they've gotten their act together if they are!
Charing Cross Station
The approach from Charing Cross station was pretty epic. This is a good stop if you want to see the tower
