Westminster Abbey, London [photo]

Westminster Abbey. You’ve seen it in dozens of movies, with the clock tower — housing Big Ben — behind it along the Thames.

Every time we’ve visited, we’ve been unlucky enough to be there for some official service or another: security everywhere and no chance of getting inside. Hopefully next time we’re in England!

    I hate to be *that guy* but Westminster Abbey doesn’t have a clock tower. Big Ben is in the clock tower of the Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament) next door to the Abbey.

    Yes, that’s right, Jonathan: ” with the clock tower — housing Big Ben — behind it along the Thames.” Maybe not the most exact sentence I’ve ever written, but thanks for the clarifying comment.

    I think most people think of the Abbey and the clock tower (often calling it the default “Big Ben”) before they think of the Houses of Parliament. I wonder if that’s true.
