This clock tower was one of Belfast's most recognizable landmarks. It was built in the late 1860's on reclaimed land and features a statue of Prince Albert as well as some carved lions and flowers. Locals sometimes refer to it as "Wee Ben" or the...More

This is a great stop while walking Belfast only 10 minutes from City Hall and great for pictures here. This is a City landmark well worth looking for when in Belfast. Lots of history with the clock and leaning.

Due to the height of the clock tower you can see this city Landmark easily. Statue of Albert on the side of the tower. Can walk past this to the waterfront and then on to the titanic Belfast.

Situated a short 10 - 15 minute walk from Belfast City Hall, the Albert Memorial Clock is Belfast's own answer to both Big Ben and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Originally built in order to commemorate Prince Albert, the clock was built on wooden supports...More

A great thing to stop and view and read a little about its history. It's stood over 100 years and could tell quite a story of the changes its seen going on around it.

The Albert Clock is old but a great landmark to use in navigating around Belfast city centre and beyond.

A nice example of a old clock tower that has slightly tilted back due to being built on poorly thought out foundations. Worth a stop if you're passing but wouldn't say it's be worth going out of your way for. Best to pass as part...More

The Albert Memorial Clock Tower has the distinction of leaning backwards on a diagonal axis. Although it's been underpinned it certainly looks like it could still blow over in a strong breeze. Worth a look at when in the City Centre area.

The clock tower is a good focal point for a walking tour of Belfast, it is leaning slightly due to the fact that it was built over a river which has eroded its foundations. I was told that it was underpinned about 10 years ago...More
