The Elizabeth Tower, which stands at the north end of the Houses of Parliament, was completed in 1859. The Great Clock started on 31 May that year, with the Great Bell (Big Ben) strikes heard for the first time on 11 July.
The tower, clock and bell recurrently undergoing major renovation work started in 2017 and not expected to complete until 2021.
