Bryan Berg Cardstacker in Houses of Parliament and Big Ben playing cards challenge

Card-stacking Guinness world record holder Bryan Berg is attempting to recreate London’s iconic Houses of Parliament and Big Ben out of playing cards.

The construction is taking place at Aspers Casino in Stratford, east London, between today and February 22.

A public vote to find the nation’s best-loved landmark chose Parliament and Big Ben for the challenge.

American Berg, who is known as The Cardstacker, is making his first appearance in London to take on the great test of skill, dexterity and patience for Sky Poker, to celebrate its Play the Nation promotion.

The creation is set to be demolished “in spectacular style” on February 27.
