Big Ben renamed to "Elizabeth Tower"

To mark Queen Elizabeth II 60-year reign, the Parliament has voted to rename London's landmark 'Big Ben'.


Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, and is generally extended to refer to the clock or the clock tower (formally known as the Clock Tower) as well.

It is now confirmed that Big Ben has been renamed to "Elizabeth Tower". This is in the celebration of Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II.
