During 2009, the UK Parliament celebrated the 150th anniversary of its world famous Clock Tower, Great Clock and Great Bell.

The name Big Ben is often used to describe the tower, the clock and the bell but the name was first given to the Great Bell. 1859 was the beginning for all three elements when the Clock Tower was completed, the Great Clock started on 31 May and the Great Bell’s chimes were heard for the first time on 11 July.

Have your iPhone (or iPod Touch) display the time of day in style.

Options include:

adding a digital clock display

showing a seconds hand

having it make a tick-tock sound

having it chime every quarter of an hour and toll on the hour (the chiming and tolling sounds will play even when the app is not open, so long as your device is not muted and you allow notifications in the General Settings for Big Ben)

Pointless? Maybe. Decorative? Certainly.

NB Sounds will only play through earphones on 1st gen iPod Touch.

Thanks to all who left comments and suggestions for improvement. In particular to Dave, whose persistence finally motivated us to release this new version.

What's New in Version 2.1

• Now works with iOS 9, while still supporting versions 7 and 8.
• Supports all four iPhone screen sizes: 4, 5, 6 and 6 plus.
• Supports 3D Touch home screen shortcuts on iPhone 6s and 6s plus to quickly toggle digital clock and chimes on/off.
• Improved support for VoiceOver accessibility.
• The movement of the minutes hand is now gradual.
No full screen iPad support yet, but it will come at a later date.

3/5 stars

Pretty cool

A nice idea, and nice that it is free.

Would love an iPad version, should you have the time.

4/5 stars


But I will rate five stars if you have where display the weather in back or something to go with where I live and if you can adjust the volume. The weather would be cool but if that's not a possibility I will take the volume

5/5 stars

Very nice

An app that just has an image of Big Ben and makes clock sounds?!? You bet! This app does exactly what it said it would do. It's a great rendition of Big Ben sights and sounds, which is awesome for those of us who love London. It brings back really nice memories. As an improvement, I'd love to have optional pictures of London around Big Ben in both afternoon and evening that could be shown with the sound of the clock in the background.
(PS - I get clock sounds even when the app is off, so not sure what the other reviewer was experiencing. Maybe due to different versions of iOS. )
