Look! No Hands! #BigBen

DC Editor Adam writes…

It's the weirdest thing – Big Ben with no hands.

As work moves on apace at the Palace of Westminster, the world's most famous clock is currently naked - the giant hands on the south-facing dial have been taken down for the first time in 31 years.

The hands are due to be replaced with a temporary pair very soon, so if you want to snap the oddest sight in London, hurry on down. It's like someone has painted the Grand Canyon purple and I'm not sure I like it, but it's certainly a rare photo opp.

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
