It's a clock tower with an interesting Victorian arhitecture that last for decades. I don't understand how such a gem isn't in the top destinations of Belfast.

This attraction can be seen while walking around or driving around the city of Belfast. It stands majestically at the crosspoint of four roads and is easily noticeable. It makes for some nice pictures on a clear day.

"The Albert Clock" has long featured in many a Belfast joke, as it was traditionally a haunt for the Ladies of the Night. The Clock made a high profile appearance in scenes of Odd Man Out, which was filmed in the 40s. Even in black and white it's stunning. Built to commemorate Queen Victoria's husband in the years that followed... More

Definitely one of the landmarks of the city, soo much history in that area of Belfast, including High Street and the docks. It's also included on the Belfast City Tour Bus tour!!

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
