Have You Heard about Big Ben?
If you know a tiny bit of London history you should know that the north clock tower ( also known as Elizabeth Tower) at the Houses of Parliament has got a Great Bell called Big Ben! The Whitechapel Bell Foundry, 20 minutes by walk from Park Villa, is notable for being the original manufacturer of Big Ben. You won’t be able to visit the foundry anymore but It’s worth to see if you are in the neighbourhood. It’s funny how few people can actually relate that yellow shop on Whitechapel Road to the famous Big Ben.
