    As stated by HSWT Big Ben is the Bell, St Stephen's is the name of the actual tower,think Sturdy Scaffolding who changed to Big Ben after a collapse in Westminster were one of the first to scaffold the fore mentioned tower.

    That's The Elizabeth tower...

    The name of the tower is no longer the Clock Tower and is now the Elizabeth Tower. It was called St Stephen's Tower by Victorian journalists. They referred to anything to do with the House of Commons as news from 'St Stephens', as originally MP's used to sit in St Stephen's Hall.

    Not Big Ben Scaffy. Big Ben is actually the bell not the tower. Sorry for being pedantic.

    Thanks Weaverbix. I had heard that somewhere before and am glad someone has confirmed it.
    Is Blackpool Tower actually the tower not some bell or clock?
