BIG BEN AND PARLIAMENT HOUSE
The Parliament House was build in the 1840, after a fire that destroyed the palace which was before. The style of this building is Gothic, built by Charles Barry and A.W. Pugin. It’s located on the north shore of the River Thames
This building was chosen as the seat of the British Parliament, British Colonial empire already. This palace is composed of over a thousand rooms (including the House of Lords and House of Commons).
This building host one of the most important tower of the World: the St. Stephens Tower, or Big Ben.
This tower is high 96 meters, was opened on the 1859, and was build in Neo-Gothic Style. There are two theories about the name of the tower: the first say that the name comes from the works supervisor, Sir Benjamin Hall, the second theory tells that the name comes from Benjamin Caunt, a heavyweight boxing champion who fought his last fight in 1857.
