  • London's Big Ben Chimes Once Again

    London's iconic Beg Ben giant watchtower clock chimed once again at 9:00 AM GMT on Thursday morning, after over two months of silence. The famous chime was temporarily suspended on August 21 due to repairs underway on Elizabeth Tower, which houses the beloved clock. Westminister clockmakers are testing the bell throughout the day in order to make sure it strikes at exactly 11.00 GMT for Armistice Day commemorations on November 11. However, it will then go silent again for over a month, only being called into action once more to chime for the Christmas period, ringing from December 23rd until January 1st at 1 PM, after which it is expected to fall silent until repairs are completed.
