More from a visit to London last month.
When you visit Westminster there are two buildings which most people will recognise. Westminster Abbey and the Palace of Westminster (otherwise known as the Houses of Parliament). The tallest is Elizabeth Tower.
The clock at the top is erroneously called Big Ben. In practice unless you are privileged to get access inside the clock tower to view the bells, you will never have seen Big Ben which is the bell used to strike the hour.
To the west of the Palace of Westminster and north of Westminster Abbey, there is Parliament Square. Along the north and west sides are statues of former UK Prime Ministers and others who have been instrumental in world affairs. The first statue, in the north east corner, is Winston Chruchill.
Following the north side of the square is David Lloyd George, Jan Christiaan Smuts, Viscount Palmerston and George Canning. On the west side is Earl of Derby, Benjamin Disraeli, Mahatma Gandhi, Robert Peel and finally Nelson Mandela.
