Episode 59: Big Ben
The clock tower of the houses of parliament is not only an icon for London but for the UK. It’s a symbol for democracy and evokes a sense of national pride. It is also one of the Top 5 selfie spots in the world, along with London Bridge, Paris’s Eiffel Tower and Rome’s Coliseum.
To accompany this podcast I have put together a colouring-in sheet for our younger listeners with some of the key facts about Big Ben and the Elizabeth Tower. See below.
