I feel in this case a photo speaks a thousand words.
I've seen Big Ben before, and luckily we only travelled from Leeds - I can't imagine travelling from overseas from a country where the renovation wasn't news, just to see this iconic tower and seeing some scaffolding instead.
The houses of parliament are nearby, also mostly covered in scaffolding.
So I wouldn't recommend going out of your way until the renovation is complete!
