Albert clock is iconic. New year celebrations used to gather here not sure if they still do. Situated near the docks

The transformation in this famous landmark is remarkable. Its nice pale sandstone is now evident after an expensive and lengthy cleanup. Victorian elegance, and we'll worth a look.

It means 4 ft backward and 4ft to the side, due to the wooden piles being eroded by the underground river. A must see even if you just stare at the lean ... quite disconcerting when you are stood underneath it!!

A very impressive tower situated just outside the Cathedral Quarter,because of its size you can use it as a reference point when walking around.

Good to see as walking through the town, not a must see but actually a very beautiful clock. On the end of town by the big fish, so good to go past if your taking a stroll along the water on the evening. Interesting to see there sights of passing. Very easy to find x

Exact copy of Big Ben. As Belfast people called everything by names this one is called Wee (means little/small) Ben. Build in top of Queen's Square, used to be centre of Old Belfast.

I guess you could call it a smaller and less famous version of Big Ben - less history and more modern. Anyway you could see the tower from quite far away. A good spot to meet friends.

This tower is Belfast's own Leaning Tower - its point is more than a meter off center. This is due to the Lagan river flowing under it, but don't worry - it's safe, thanks to recent work to shore up the base. It really is an arresting piece of architecture and a good picture - not much to do beyond... More

You will notice this clock while visiting the Cathedral quarter of Belfast. Interesting bit of history behind the building of the clock and is the combo of the leaning tower of Pisa/Elizabeth Clock combo. If you take the HOHO tour, they mention the history of its building while on the tour. Not something to go out of my way to... More
