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.
On the bus tour you do past this clock, Built for the Death of Prince Albert, paid for by public contribution , cost £2000 to build, just cost £2,000,000 to restore.?? That's inflation for you.
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.
We saw this sight on a number of times during our visit to Belfast, it has an interesting history & a obvious lean! Worth stopping & looking at on the way past
True, Albert Memorial Clock Tower does lean, even after it has often been restored? Probably does when it is 'under scaffolding and sheeting' if such info is not disclosed? So does it 'lean' in the photos taken of it from ground level: depending on where from? Where it is located is not 'level' If not uncommon, some places are 'designed'... 更多
