Read on.

 

Fact 1 about the Big Ben:

The official name of the place is not Big Ben.

 

What? 

 

Well, you read it right.

 

Earlier it was known as the Clock Tower. 

 

However, in the year 2012, the name of the clock tower was changed to Elizabeth Tower after Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee.

 

Moreover, the term “Big Ben” isn’t used for the clock, but for the bell inside the tower. What makes the story even more strange is the fact that the bell’s real name is not “Big Ben” but the “Great Bell”.

 

The term “Big Ben” is nothing but a nickname used for the bell. The nickname was given from Sir Benjamin Hall’s name.

 

Fact 2 about the Big Ben:

The clock was designed by a lawyer

 

It was Edward Dent, a clockmaker, who designed the initial design of the clock. However, Edmund Beckett Denison, a lawyer, came into the scene and changed the design so much that he came to be known as the chief designer of the clock. 

 

Oh, it's time for the challenge!

Fact 3 about the Big Ben:

There are pennies on the pendulum

The last interesting fact about Big Ben.

 

The Big Ben clock has English pennies on it. In case the clocks run fast, a penny is added to the pendulum. In case the clock runs slow, a penny is taken away from the pendulum. The very same practice gives birth to the English idiom, “putting a penny on”!
