This 160-year-old great clock tower stands 315 feet tall in London. “Big Ben” is technically the nickname for the largest bell in the tower, however, it is often meant to include the tower and clock as well. As one of the most recognizable landmarks in the UK, Big Ben is a British cultural icon. In fact, Big Ben is probably featured in most every London-based film you’ve ever seen!

2. Stonehenge – GBP

This prehistoric monument located in Wiltshire, England is believed to have been constructed from 3000 BC to 2000 BC.
