Out of security concern, tourists from overseas are no longer allowed to take tours around Big Ben, according to the Daily Mail. As one of London's most famous icons, Big Ben is the "must go place" on the list of foreign tourists. But they have to regret this time.

Clearance checks for foreigners which were to ensure that terrorists could not target the historic clock tower became too complex and costly, said the newspaper. But British citizens are still allowed to visit Big Ben, but must apply by writing to their MP.

No foreigners: Tourists have been banned from visiting Big Ben

Pathetic.
We are all prisoners of our own device.
