Walk down to Chelsea from the National Gallery and hunt the second-hand book stores for hidden treasures. Walk over to Piccadilly. Walk further down to the Big Ben, or the Tower of London.
Big Ben – Inspired after watching the flick “Secret Life of Walter Mitty” to pack your bags and plan your next trip to London and experience the iconic view of Big Ben? Why just this flick, there is Cars 2 for the movie buffs who have a soft spot for animation movies and all things wheels? Then Big Ben is the place to be in.
London is not just a city of tourist spots like the Buckingham Place, the London Bridge, the London eye and the London dungeon, it is a city of sanctity and adventure as well. I remember just randomly taking a way down the banks of the river Thames, without a tour guide, I didn't know how long it would take or where all I would go when I started, it was just a random thought to just start walking along the river starting from Big Ben.
Get off at Westminster Station, follow the directions and the first thing you see as you exit is Big Ben, imposing and massive, right in front of you.
Walking through the streets towards Big ben would defiantly take you to your next destination the London eye.
A stop by big ben on the way to london eye is definitely worthy.Big Ben is the nickname for the Great Bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, and often extended to refer to the clock and the clock tower.You can get good shots of the big ben from the Parliament Square across the street opposite big ben.
London = Big Ben! Do I need to say more here? You see the Big Ben and then you just want to keep looking at it and as you walk away, you will turn around and then look at it again! Tip: Try to stay back to hear the strikes of Big Ben.
