Get up close to Big Ben! The clock was first started on May 31st 1859, and Big Ben’s first chime rang from the 96-meter Elizabeth Tower on July 11th of the same year. This over 23” (60cm) high LEGO® interpretation of the iconic structure is a tribute to its engineering and architecture. It features a detailed facade with statues, shields and windows, and a clock tower with 4 adjustable clock dials and a removable roof allowing access to the belfry, plus buildable exterior elements including a sidewalk, lawn and a tree depicting the building’s location. This model makes a great display piece for the home or office.

  • Big Ben features a detailed section of the Westminster Palace and the adjoining Elizabeth Tower, 4 detailed clock dials with movable hour and minutes hands, and a sidewalk, tree and grass area depicting the building’s location.
  • Remove the top of the tower to access the Big Ben bell.

    This was definitely my favourite of the Creator Expert Sets. It is extremely detailed, it has almost no repetition, and it is just the right price. I especially loved the little characters that were used as statues. It added that realistic touch to it. This was so much fun to build.

    Beautiful build - outstanding with a light kit

    I wouldn't say this was an overly fun build for myself - very repetitive pieces, especially at the beginning of the build. However, the end result is outstanding and well worth the tedious putting together. A friend bought me a light kit for this - I highly recommend getting one. Big Ben is the crowning glory of my Lego collection. It looks amazing when it's all lit up.

    Exquisite Detail

    This model achieves a high level of architectural detail by using a large number of small pieces, many of them used in very creative ways. The build is excellent and challenging, you have to pay attention. The person who designed this model really knew what he or she was doing. There is a lot of repetition, but I did not find that a problem because the end result is so rewarding. So rewarding in fact, that I built a second model in mirror reverse, left to right, and truncating the Elizabeth Tower to create a Parliament Buildings complex. Adding a base to the models created a more massive appearance. We can only hope that this model signifies a new Lego program to produce additional classical European style architectural structures. Westminster Abby maybe?
