Foreign visitors are banned from taking the Big Ben tours in London, due to increasing concerns over terrorism. Big Ben is said to be the most accurate public clock in the world.

In a bid to filter out terrorists, clearance checks for tourists were being carried out. However, these were proving too complex and costly an affair, according to a report in Tour Expi. British citizens are allowed to visit the famous clock tower, but only after getting permission from their local MPs.
