Big Ben and the Elizabeth Tower tours

Elizabeth Tower conservation works

Big Ben and the Elizabeth Tower tours are now suspended due to refurbishment. Tours are scheduled to resume in 2021 once the work is complete.

Essential conservation works needed to refurbish and repair the Elizabeth Tower and Great Clock were announced in April 2016. As these large scale works are now underway, there are no tours inside the Elizabeth Tower.
