While we aren’t able to see the entire structure we did get to see the top prior to being boarded up for 3 years for restoration.

Right now, it is under construction. This is sad because it is really hard to take a picture for the memory.

I was in London for 20 days visiting my boyfriend. I went around the whole area to find the perfect spot to take a picture with the BigBen and not to see all those tubes and the man working on top.

(see the pictures attached to the review) The trick is to cover half of it but not the top. This you can do with a selfie like the one I took. Or with someone taking the picture. If you see both of the pictures you will understand what I am talking about.

Of course you have to go to the BigBen if you are in London. It is one of the main landmarks.

Sad that this historic landmark was under construction. Clock is working, but it would have been nice to hear chimes.

My son only wanted to see this and he was sad that it was “broken” so I said let’s just take a picture in front of Big Ben and hopefully come back later.

Big Ben is one of the iconic places of London. But unfortunately it is fully covered now except a glimpse of the clock from one side only, as some construction work is going on since long time. Sad to see that the bell also never rings now.
