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

As said it is just a bell tower, ok to see if you walk by it. Not worth the effort to go there for just this.

I saw the clock and thought of Big Ben. The slight tilt off centre makes it a real,point of interest. It stands as a great landmark in Belfast.

Best for the stories the locals tell about it and the swamp it was built on - hence the inclination. You can get the overhead cranes of the Harland and Woolf shipyard in the background ofa photo opf the tower. Nice area to walk aeound. The oldest pub in Belfast is across the road.

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..
