It's a lovely little clock tower, it's definitely worth a visit! It's located perfectly close to the city center, the big fish and st. Georges Market so you can see all of them in one day! There's benches around it and little watershowers (I have no idea what they're called) that make a little watershow every now and then.

On your way to walk to more interesting sights this is a very good spot to stop off and look at the tower. It is in good condition and a decent sight.

I do love this clock tower. Every time I see it I marvel at the construction effort in building it (today is no different). It was built on reclaimed land,and is soft hence the tilt. It tilts 1 meter off centre from the top. I'm very pleased to call it the Leaning Tower of Belfast.

I have passed the Albert Clock, by bus & car, for years & have never appreciated it for the landmark it is. I didn't even know it stood at a slant until I visited it by foot the other week & the fact that it dates back to 1869 - well the clock tower has just gone up in my... More

The thing really does look like it leans a little more than the 4" they say it does. If you're going anywhere in City Center you'll probably see it. As a tourist the best thing about it was using it to know where the heck we were.

Whilst it definitely leans, it is not really worth trekking out of your way to see it. There is a very busy one way street (4 or 5 lanes wide) running past the front of it. If you happen to be going to McHughs Bar, a concert in Custom House Square, then chances are you will pass it on your... More

Went to admire the clock, to look at the structure and the architecture of it, then went to a local bar to taste the Guinness, where there was more bar-room trivia about the Albert Clock. If a person in Belfast is more than 'two-faced' - then they say, " You've got more faces than the Albert Clock". After a few... More

Interesting sight of a clock tower leaning ever so slightly due to bad foundations. Lovely tower, but only worth a visit if you are nearby

I was walking around Belfast, taking in the sights when I came across the clock tower. It is centrally located, close to the customs house, and the blue fish, and a nice shopping area. So if you are nearby definitely stop and snap a few pictures.
