Nice tower. Would benefit from a clean better publicity and a more precarious lean. A landmark from where you can explore the surrounding area and enjoy the contrast between the old and the new. More interesting sites tucked away in the adjacent side streets.

Nothing special in this spot! The Albert Clock is also known as "Little Big Ben" and Is one of the very famous sightseeings of Belfast city center but is just it.

Where else in the world would they pay millions of dollars to fix a clock tower that leans only to find that it still leans. The tower is about a 10 minute walk from the city centre and five minutes from the Big Fish and George Market. You need to see it up close to see the gorgeous statue of... More

There isn't really much to say about it; it's a clock tower. But it does look awesome, serves as a landmark, and is near other major central attractions, so would definitely recommend checking it out!

If you do visit Belfast you must take a bus tour and if you do you will without doubt see the Albert Memorial Clock. There is a lot to see in the area and the Albert Memorial Clock Tower is considered to be a landmark by the tourist guides. But to be honest it is little more that an attractive... More

This clock tower grabbed my attention and because it did, I gave it 5-stars. This is a beautiful building regardless of its diminutive size compared to the bigger more famous one in London. As far as the time, it is atomically correct.

It's a beautiful landmark, but I can't say it's special by itself. Of course is worth stopping there on your way to other attractions in the city, but only that

This is a cool clock. Its genuinely a beautiful piece of architecture. And the time is almost always right. I could see it out my window from my flat, and always thought it was my eyes that made it wonky. But no, this clock is wonky. Some say ladies of the night used to lean on it, back in the... More
