Loved my dad telling me stories about this place when he was a kid, how it was over a river and that's why it's wonky!

This clock may remind us of Queen Victoria's consort, Albert. The Albert memorial in London is far more impressive. in fact the whole centre of Belfast reminds us of Victorian taste in buildings, architecture etc..

There are benches you can sit on and people watch. There are always lots of tourists.Quite often they have things going on in the small park. It is also close to the water front where you can see the ship yards where the Titanic was built.

Not a bad clock tower but this isn't a huge tourist attraction and nor should it be, it's nice to look at it if you walk past but it's not worth going out of your way to see it.

Nice clock tower which makes a nice photo opportunity. But that's about it; there's not much else to it. It's very elegant and is one of the city's more distinctive structures but once you arrive and see it, that's all you can do. Really struggling to say anything else.

This is a tilted clock. The ground underneath was reclaimed land from the River Lagan - the clock has therefore subsided at a tilt. There is nothing other than the clock to see. Watch where you stand, randomly the fountain (disguised in the footpath comes on) but not in hot weather, just cold.

The clock tower was completed in 1869 and was funded by public subscription. Because of its proximity to the docks, it is rumoured that the local ladies of the night, caused the tower to lean by leaning against it whilst plying their trade. Of course this romantic notion is untrue. The tower leans back by 4 feet and to the... More

This tower bents over, due to unstable underground. Nice "Belle Epoque" building but very strange to look at, clearly showing it bents over! No danger, because it has been stabilized and reinforced with concrete. Worth passing by.

Fab thing to stop and take a second at when walking through Belfast. May not notice to begin with but the tower actually is leaning to one side!
