UK1994-Part1-London : NOT "Big Ben"

The building in the center is the clock tower at the Palace of Westminster. It is not, as some people think, " Big Ben ". "Big Ben" is actually the name of the bell that chimes the hours, not the clock or the clock tower, so you can "hear big Ben chime"; but very few people have actually seen Big Ben.
