Presenting the Big Ben Clock Tower, one of the world's most instantly recognizable landmarks. Standing at the northeast corner of the Palace of Westminster in London, England, the Big Ben Clock Tower was erected from 1843–1859 following a fire that burned down much of the original palace. The clock tower features classical design with a distinct gothic influence. The clockwork itself was designed by Edward John Dent shortly after construction of the tower began. This LEGO® Architecture series interpretation of the Big Ben Clock Tower was designed by Slovenian architect Rok Žgalin Kobe in collaboration with the LEGO design team.

- April 16th, 2015Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Excellent LEGO settheref |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SonGot this as a father's day present as something me and my 4 year old son could work on in advance of our trip to London. It's been a great success - it's pretty straightforward to build - too complex for a 4 year old to easily follow the instructions, but easy enough that he can build it with an adult's direction, so works well as an activity to do together. The model looks very nice, fair amount of detail, and completed looks like a good replication of the real thing. My other son (who is 2) also took great delight in destroying it - but both boys were delighted when they then got the chance to see the real thing. Highly recommended.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Big Ben
- February 28th, 2013Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0The second in the seriesTommiAB |I would recommend this to a friend!For me this set is the second from the Architecture Series after Farnsworth House, at least in value for Money. Slovenian architect has done an excellent job. I think LEGO is better to build modern buildings, such as Farnsworth House and reflecting old, Gothic building can be particular challenging but in this case mission is accomplished and it was successfully achieved.Play Experience5.0Value for Money5.0Was this helpful?55Big Ben
- September 2nd, 2013Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Captures the EssenceI would recommend this to a friend!I bought this the day after getting my first Architecture set (Tower of Pisa) and was more than happy with it. Once again I was impressed with the presentation, packaging and manual: all top quality. The build was interesting with nice use of grills and a clever upright 1x2 tile to fill a roof gap. The model is well designed and captures the essence of the Elizabeth Tower. One problem with this set was that one tile was damaged and needed replacing. This was a first for me but Lego replaced the tile immediately with no hassle. Well done TLG!Play Experience3.0Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money3.0Building Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Big Ben
- October 5th, 2012Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0This model is AWSOME!wuzzerz |I would recommend this to a friend!I enjoyed the build fairly well and I had a defect on one of my clocks. The clock should also not have a second hand. But the price was a much better value in terms of the number of pieces than the other architecture sets. But still the price was not perfect. Pros. Has lots of detail, stands out from the other architecture buildings, not very flimsy, and a very solid build. Cons. Clock has a second hand, repetitive build (boring to build), and a bad color choice. Overall pretty good buy!Play Experience3.0Level of Difficulty2.0Value for Money4.0Building Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Big Ben
