Big Ben is one of the United Kingdom's famous landmarks. If you can't see it in person, a Big Ben drawing is a fun project you can work on at home.

Officially, Big Ben is called the Elizabeth Tower to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's historic reign. However, most people know the tower as Big Ben.

The clock tower still works and has almost never stopped ticking.
