Initially, "Big Ben" was the name of the largest of the six bells, but this name is often broadly referred to both the clock and the clock tower itself.

At the time of its casting, Big Ben was the largest and heaviest bell in the United Kingdom. At the same time, its weight was 13.7 tons. In 1881 he lost the primacy to the Big Paul bell.
