THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT AND THE RIVER THAMES
 
The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben
are situated on the north bank of the River Thames.
Big Ben is now the name given to the whole of the 23 feet diameter clock,
which keeps unerring time in the Clock Tower
of the Houses of Parliament,
but originally it was the name given to the enormous bell,
installed in 1858, which strikes the hours.
When the House is in session at night,
the lantern above the clock is always kept alight.
