As the procession passed, we turned back to examine that area, and suddenly we noticed that we were standing right under the Big Ben!
This is the World's largest four-faced chiming clock. Like us, there were many tourists and locals eagerly waiting around that area until 7 pm to hear the tone of the bell. Then, we crossed the road and tried to take a full view of the parliamentary buildings, but with my camera I could capture only this:(
Contrast to this old marvelous neo-gothic building, look at this equally beautiful modern building, which is just opposite to Big Ben.
From here, we could see the London Eye as well. But, to get a better view we walked up to London Pier.
The wheel was spinning at painstakingly slow speed. In fact, Eye on Malaysia at Titiwangsa was a bit faster! Moreover, the ticket price is GBP 17/person. So we decided not to go for a London Eye flight (ride).
This is the London Aquarium, which is situated besides the London Eye. We didn't go there either.
