Additional Details:
This is one of the most charming views in London, and the whole great mass of buildings (covering twice the area of the old palace of Edward the Confessor which once stood here) is seen at their very best, softened by the river mists. The Houses contain 11,000 rooms, and in the Clock Tower is the enormous bell known as Big Ben. Along the river front stand statues of all our English Sovereigns from William the Conqueror to Queen Victoria.
