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

The more I looked at the clock,the more it looked like it was leaning to one side. I began to think it was me...one drink too many??! Apparently the road is built on a river....hence the tilt!! Good picture opportunity!

Interesting little clock tower that is now crooked due to the wooden “support” it was built upon. It’s good to see, but you don’t really need to spend time here.

We found this clock tower was a handy guide to know where we were in the city. But other than that it was something to take a quick look at and move on. Belfast city itself still needs substantial investment in tourism as many of...More

Passed on hop on and off tour and had to get off for a closer look and photo opportunity. An impressive landmark standing over Belfast and seen from distance.

It is on every Belfast guidebook and if you are on a guided-tour in Belfast, your guide will point it out and make some remarks about it. It is eye-catching as one of our fellow travellers had said, and you will see it!

This big clock has been a major tourist attraction for a lifetime! It is at the end of High Street and can be seen from the city centre quite easily. It is on the way to The Big Blue Fish and athe Lagan Walkway.
