If you’re not feeling a long walk, take a stroll to Westminster Cathedral, also known as The Metropolitan Cathedral of the Precious Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

If you don’t fancy visiting the Houses of Parliament, but still want to take a great walk, then head over to keep time in Victoria with Little Ben. A recent return to the public eye, Little Ben was removed in 2012, allowing for upgrades and fixes, before being reinstalled in February of 2016.

Little Ben is the the younger brother of Big Ben, the name of the bell that tolls behind London’s most famous clock at Westminster.

Put up in 1892, it has been removed and restored over the years but has become a timely symbol of the friendship between France and the UK, keeping time for France for half of the year and for the UK for the rest.

This pint-sized clock tower is made of cast iron giving it a striking appearance with gold trim and red backing for the clock face.
