As a professor, everywhere I go I make it a point to visit historic sites, local libraries, museums, civic centers and etcetera. The Clock Tower in Georgetown, Cayman Islands is an important landmark and is just opposite and inspiring sculpture commemorating the brave women of the Cayman Islands. The town library is also across from The Clock Tower.

This really is just a little clock tower. Not a lot more to it really and it's amazing that it even gets listed as a tourist "sight". If you don't happen to see it from your taxi as you go past don't make an effort to see it - you haven't missed anything!

Not the most interesting clock tower or plaza. It's a small and very simple clock tower in the central square. George Town doesn't have much to see or do.

Every era builds monuments and this is dedicated to HM George V (HM Queen Elizabeth's grandfather, BTW HM QEII is also Queen of the Cayman Islands) and this is practical (because of the public clock) version. It's close to the port and near the Post Office. Walk by it and think of a past era when most people didn't wear... More

Located where Edward Street dead ends into Fort Street, the Clock Tower is an attractive memorial to King George V and is often used as a meeting place. While not a must see it is located in front of the equally attractive 1919 Peace Memorial and near Heroes Square and worth a quick look if in the area.

The Clock Tower in Georgetown is simply put, nothing special. The central square in this tiny island nation shows off a bit of history, that said, it's really just a clock on a tower. It's not majestic or flashy, I just saw it in the background while enjoying some sun and watching my daughter play in the fountain adjacent to... More

Nice clock in Georgetown, not a must see but still if you are walking the city,neat for a quick photo. It's a good place to center walking tour around. near the bus terminal.

It's not a very tall or imposing tower. It is in front of "The Peace Memorial" which is just a building from what we could tell... No way to go inside and no placard explaining anything. The most interesting thing about the clock tower is the monument across the street, recognizing the women who fought for the right to vote... More

I was very dissapointed with this. It is attached to a building which isn't even open an there is very little history about how or why it is even here. If you are wandering the city and have nothing better to do go and look at it, but do not go out of your way.

The Clock Tower was in a nice little radius of culture amid the shops and boutiques of George Town, that featured several landmarks such as the National Museum, Library and Post Office. It really doesn't make you go out of the way to stop and record a little something about your hosts. The buildings are pretty and well kept. They... More
