Despite the fact that big Ben was closed for years of renovation, in honor of Christmas and New year it will again sound for residents and visitors of the English capital. Previously, he did not cease to announce his fight to the streets of London for the past 157 years.
The London landmark, attracting tourists from around the world, was closed for years of renovation in August 2017, which will end only in 2021. In the future it will be heard only during big celebrations.
To call big Ben will begin on 23 December at 9 am and last time before continuing repairs will be performed at 13: 00 on 1 January. Then again silenced until the next gala event.
Perhaps this event will be the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The guardian of the old chiming clock of the Palace of Westminster Steve Jaggs notes that the bell sound after such a long silence will be the most
