Its hard to go to London and not desperately wish to see Big Ben. Its just not the same. Its probably worth the picture so you can say you saw the renovation when it is complete.

I’m lucky I live in the uk I can see Big Ben when ever I want felt sorry for people who have travelled thousands of miles to see it as it’s all covered with scaffolding. Anyway it’s still standing there in all its glory. Will...More
Big Ben was covered and there was nothing to see there, which was really sad as this was one out of 3 big wishes for this trip. We will try next time. But would have been nice if that information was easy to find so...More
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

This is not a question seeking a specific information, but a rhetorical skeptical statement or a complaint that should be addressed to the corporate office of TripAdvisor...Posted reviews are personal impressions of their authors. Readers can take it or leave it!...A sensible traveler exercises due diligence to research his/her destinations of interest, TripAdvisor is just one source of information!... As for Big Ben specifically, anyone who wants to see the bell itself can make arrangement, but not until the current restoration of the clock, the tower and the Houses of Parliament are completed, probably in 2020.
