1. Revolving Torsion (Redux)

    Mark-Spokes.com | Twitter

    Revolving Torsion is a kinetic statue/fountain designed by the renowned Russian Sculpture Naum Gabo. The piece itself sits in the Gardens of St Thomas’ Hospital, on the Southbank of the River Thames. Despite the Gardens stunning views, as well as being a very pleasant patch of Green in an Urban environment, for reasons unknown to me, The Garden always seems abandoned, meaning it’s one of the few places in London where you can get amazing views from a quite location.

    Big Ben is one of London’s most famous landmarks, towering over the city, bells chiming everything 15 minutes, and peeling everyone hour. The name “Big Ben” actually refers to the bell inside the Clock Tower, as opposed to the tower itself, which is now known as Elizabeth Tower (in honour of Queen Elizabeth II’s golden jubilee), prior to this it was known simply as the Clock Tower - or incorrectly as St Stephens Tower. The Bell is thought be named after Sir Benjamin Hall - civil engineer, the bell itself weighs a staggering 16 tons, whilst each clock face is 7 meters in diameter.
