The Leaning Tower of London - level 1

The Leaning Tower of London - level 1

Do you know Big Ben? It is a great building in London. It is a tower with a clock. It is 96 metres high. It is near the River Thames. Now the tower has a problem. It goes to the side. People can see it now. Tourists look at it.

People built the underground under Big Ben. They built a big car park under Big Ben, too. This can be the problem.

Experts don’t think that this is a big problem. They say that it is not so big. But people gave Big Ben a new name. The name is “The Leaning Tower of London”. It is like “The Leaning Tower of Pisa” in Italy.
