I have to admit that 'Little Ben' close to Victoria train station, is one of my favourite London clocks. Manufactured and installed in 1892, the cast iron structure is approximately 30 ft tall. The likeness to the Elizabeth Tower at the Palace of Westminster is intentional but they are very clearly, not identical.
It doesn't quite sit comfortably with the surroundings; appearing ever so slightly out of place in this bustling part of the capital. Removed at various intervals to help facilitate improvements to the local transport system; it has recently been restored (again) and looks absolutely wonderful.
Continually set to British Summer Time, a plaque indicates that the timepiece has a connection with France. This Gallic link refers to the nearby train station as Victoria was for many years, the gateway to Paris for thousands of travellers.
