"Big Ben" (or to give it it's proper name, The Great Bell) is cast out of bellmetal, which is an alloy of bronze and tin.

Big Ben clock tower, now renamed Elizabeth Tower, is made from brickwork covered by limestone cladding for the first 200 feet (61 metres) and the remaining 115 feet (35 metres) is a framed cast iron spire.
