about this item

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.

This is BY FAR my favorite Lego set on the market. There really is nothing like it! The build can get a bit tedious, but when the model is complete, the visual is simply stunning. They couldn't have done better. I love the large part of the set (the building), and the clock tower is even better. It ...  see moreof LukeyNoodles's review

    I was shocked at the piece to price ratio until realizing most pieces are 1 stud wide. Most disappointing is that it is not to scale with other creator expert which is a lot to ask for.... but it doesn't even accommodate minifigs. Other than that the build was thoroughly enjoyable  see moreof NyvedMenon's review

        Repetitive, but challenging for my 15 year old. He enjoyed building it and is very proud of the finished product.  see moreof RRichardson's review

          This LEGO set is what I receive for Christmas and I can tell you that it is amazing to do! The instructions are easy to follow and the way that the pieces are separated in different bags made my building experience a whole lot easier! I recommend this set to anyone who has a love for all things Engl...  see moreof treblecleft23's review

            This build took me a couple days to complete, and left me with fingers hurting, but it was definitely worth it. There is a lot of repetition, especially in the tower, and the facade of the palace section, but it needs to be that way to get such a neat look. As for functionality, the clock hands func...  see moreof LegoTucker's review

              This product is a nice challenging build and it took me 1 week to build. You can lift up the top of the tower and see the bell. Also, you can spin round the handle at the back so that the clock hands will move on all four faces; a clever use of bricks again by the LEGO designers!  see moreof Corryewan's review
