🎉 Big Ben is 160-years-old and for its birthday, the clock tower is getting a facelift!

While the tower was constructed a couple months earlier, the chimes from the giant bell were first heard on 11th July 1859.
🔔Fun fact, Big Ben is the name of the bell within the clock rather than the entire structure, which is called the Elizabeth Tower.

🛠If you’re planning to visit Westminster to hear the famous chimes, you’ll be disappointed as it is undergoing renovations until 2021.
