These facts you surely didn’t knew about Big Ben

Big Ben is 150 years old Although the famous clock tower is one of London’s most iconic landmarks, it has only been around since 1859 A.D. It was incorporated into the redesign of the Palace of Westminster following a ravaging fire that destroyed most of the parliamentary complex in 1834. The clock tower has been called the Elizabeth Tower since 2012, when it was formally renamed to honour Queen Elizabeth II’s diamond jubilee. Big Ben is the nickname of the Great Bell, which is responsible for the iconic bongs that have punctuated time in Westminster for more than a century and a half.

Victorians called it St Stephen’s Tower Before the queen’s diamond jubilee in 2012, the tower was officially and unoriginally called the Clock Tower. Not wanting to be dull, the Victorians called it St Stephen’s Tower after St Stephen’s Hall, the Westminster Palace meeting place of the House of Commons before the fire of 1834.

Regular repairs are carried out to preserve the landmark. Big Ben fell silent in 2017 to enable essential conservation work to be carried out. Don’t worry, the bongs will be back in 2021 – but this is not the first time the Great Bell has gone silent. Ben was also silenced when repairs took place in 1976, 1983-85 and 2007.

That’s more than one and a half times the height of London’s new double-decker route master buses.Big Ben was designed in the Gothic revival style Although the modern Palace of Westminster was completed during the reign of Queen Victoria, people could be forgiven for thinking it looks a little medieval. That’s because architect Charles Barry designed the tower in the hauntingly beautiful Gothic revival style.

Google’s birthday tribute to Steve Irwin causes fans to cry

It’s Steve Irwin’s 57th birthday — and the Aussie legend is getting some serious love on his special day.

If you’ve been on the internet today, chances are you’ve seen the Google Doodle dedicated to the late-wildlife warrior.

Google have created six animations to mark the Crocodile Hunter’s birthday — honouring the Aussie icon — and the result is a bucket load of tears and emotion.

There’s six colourful illustrations depicting Steve as we know him best, working among wildlife and spending time with his family.

In the opening image, Steve is holding a giant croc who has the letter ‘L’ from Google clasped between his sharp teeth.

Next you see him in a boat with his beloved Staffordshire Bull Terrier, who sadly died back in 2004.

The pair appear to be on a billabong as Steve films some giant crocs nearby.

He is then shown putting on one of his famous feeding shows at Australia Zoo performing in the early days before he found fame and again to a camera-happy audience.

His catchphrase “Crikey” appears among a sea of polaroid style drawings of him with a variety of different animals in the fourth animation, including snakes, reptiles, whales and birds.

The whole Irwin family are also honoured, with an adorable drawing of a young Bindi and Robert with their parents being included.

In it, Steve and wife Terri are doting over the two tots, as Bindi portrays her matching passion to dad, holding a mini crocodile.

The final drawing shows the amazing memorial Terri, 54, Bindi, 20, and Rob, 15, have built for Steve since his passing 13 years ago, showing them outside Australia Zoo, surrounded by koalas and cockatoos.

There’s a stream of guests waiting to get inside, showing just how successful they’ve been at building and fulfilling Steve’s dream of sharing the joys of wildlife conservation with the world.

Steve died in 2006 while filming his hit TV show when a stingray pierced his heart with its barb.

Bindi took to Instagram today to share a heartfelt message for her dad.

“Thank you for always being my guiding light,” she wrote.

She also shared an adorable photo of her as a bub with her dad as he cradled both her and a koala.

Fans have taken to Twitter to express their love of the moving tribute, with many declaring they’ve been left in tears.
