Trivia question: Which London fixture is officially named “Big Ben”?

A tower
A clock
A bell

 

The answer is: A bell

Answer: If you’ve ever been to London, you’ve undoubtedly seen the giant clock tower at the corner of the Palace of Westminster. Contrary to popular belief, the clock tower itself is not named “Big Ben”. “Big Ben” is actually the name of just the bell inside. The clock is named the Great Clock of Westminster, and the tower is named the Elizabeth Tower.
