Big Ben will chime for the first time in four years to celebrate New Year’s Eve

To celebrate the beginning of 2022 and the start of an important year for the Elizabeth Tower project, Big Ben will be struck 12 times.

Big Ben Chimes New Year's Eve

The Elizabeth Tower and Big Ben clock are undergoing the biggest repair and conservation project since they were built around 160 years ago.

The £80 million project has left the tower covered in scaffolding for the last four years.



The bell will be struck 12 times to mark the start of the new year, as the restoration nears its end.

It will be the first time in nearly four years that all of the dials will be on display.
