Please note these are two separate sites within the Parliament complex. Big Ben is the world-famous clock tower. The Houses of Parliament are where official governance operations of the United Kingdom are conducted. The entire complex is a beautiful piece of Gothic Revival architecture worth checking out (particularly when seen from the River Thames at night!).
