it is ok for a quick pass around

nothing special, just a small clock tower, with some history notes on a piece of granite slab at a corner nearby. Just to tick off your "place to go list"

It is a historic local landmark that the islanders are quite proud of. But it isn't that large or grand and the color doesn't really do the structure any favors.

We went to have a look at this tower, but it doesn't have anything special from an architectural point of view. It designates the center of Victoria and is a good identification point for us tourists (to check if we are on the right path while driving) - but there is not much else to say about this spot.

It is really even smaller than you would quess from pictures. It tkes about 30 seconds to check it out. Dont travel just for that to Victoria, but if you are nearby, you propably cant mis that.

Nice memories, but no need to book a tour for that. If you are staying in Mahé you will surely come across the Clock!!! Reminds me of the Big BEN... (FYI the natives don't really like the comparison)

When in Victoria Litle Ben this is a must to see. It is an exact copy of Big Ben in London but smaller. It takes only a minute to pass and photo in a cross road in the city near the market. See it and forget - but keep it as a souvenir memory.

Looked smaller then d pictures. Not worth coming into the city. Too busy. There are some coffee shops and restaurants around and a small market but too much traffic. Would rather stay on the beach relaxing.

Sits in the centre of a roundabout You can't miss it Top tip on Seychelles Change some money at the airport or use the Barclays ATMs as all the currency exchange places run a 9 to 5 five day week schedule You can probably book a car cheaper on arrival then on line but it's a chance Enjoy

About 15 ft high in middle of roundabout. We were told it was just like Big Ben in London and it is in some ways but shocked at how small it was. There is also a statue of Queen Victoria nearby, that is only about 3 ft high.
