Overview

Little Ben gets its name as the replica of the tower housing Big Ben in the Palace of Westminster which is at the opposite end of Victoria Street. This cast iron clock tower can be found where Vauxhall Bridge Road joins Victoria Street. Little Ben was a gift from a French company as a symbol of friendship between the two countries and was originally erected in 1892. Since then, it has been removed a few times for restoration, but has always been returned to this spot. The following is written on the clock: 'Apology for Summer Time, My hands you may retard or may advance, my heart beats true for England as for France. J.W.R.'
