London bridge stands at the western end of the Pool of London and is positioned 30 metres (98 ft) upstream from previous alignments. The approaches to the medieval bridge were marked by the church of St Magnus-the-Martyr on the northern bank and by Southwark Cathedral on the southern shore. Until Putney Bridge opened in 1729, London Bridge was the only road crossing of the Thames downstream of Kingston upon Thames. London Bridge has been depicted in its several forms, in art, literature, and songs, including the nursery rhyme “London Bridge Is Falling Down”, and the epic poem The Waste Land by T. S. Eliot.

Big Ben is the nickname for the Great Clock of Westminster located at the northern end of the Palace of Westminster in London, England, a name that is often expanded to also refer to the Clock and Clock Tower.
The tower was designed by Augustus Pukin in the Neo-Gothic style. When it was completed in 1859, its clock was the largest and most accurate four-sided clock in the world. The tower is 316 feet (96 meters) high and requires 334 steps to climb from the ground to the bell tower. Its base is square and measures 40 feet (12 meters) on each side. The dial of the clock measures 22.5 feet (6.9 meters) in diameter. All four countries of Great Britain are represented on the tower, with the rose of England, the thistle of Scotland, the shamrock of Ireland and the leek of Wales on the shield. On May 31, 2009, the 150th anniversary of the commemorative tower was celebrated.
