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.

We were walking to the Odyssey and came across this clock. It is quite tall and definitely worth seeing. A little off the tourist trail but it is well signposted.

Quite a significant landmark in Belfast, and you can definitely see the lean in it - which was what initially got my attention. I think they should let it lean, and not try to correct it - it's what makes it an attraction.

You cant miss the Albert Clock or as the locals like to call the Leaning tower of Belfast. Its got quite a central location and although nothing very special, yet an important landmark.

At first, I didn't notice that the clock was leaning to its side. After a second look, it was in fact inclined to its side. After going to a tour around Belfast, the tour guide told us an old tale on why the clock was leaning. It was told that before, at night, ladies would come to this clock to... More
