The Mini-Big-Ben

It was nice to see this Mini Big Ben. We did not get much explanation from our driver except that it was built to mimic the one in London

Silly little tower in the middle of a crossroad, definitively an overrated attraction to fill the travel guides

We were quite amused, not to say chocked to see how small the clock tower is. It's in the middle of a crossroad and looks rather cheap. Not sure why it's listed as a point of interest as it is of no interest whatsoever.

Got lost looking for it. When we did find it we were very underwhelmed as it is quite small. It is also a roundabout so quite difficult to take a picture of!

The tower is in the centre of Victoria and a useful point of reference. It's more of a grandfather clock than Big Ben .......and silver!

The Clock Tower is a symbolic hallmark of Victoria, which must be the smallest capital city. Everyone in Victoria guided us towards the clock tower whenever we asked for directions to other attractions located nearby. Understandably, the area around the clock tower houses the most important buildings of Seychelles governance and economy. The tower, in itself, is beautiful, and the... More

While the beaches of Seychelles are among the world's finest, the country is so short of any cultural attraction that I personally prefer Mauritius. The fact that this clock tower in the smallest capital city I've been to (even smaller than Dili in Timor-Leste) is listed on TripAdvisor tells a lot about how boring the place is. A memorial to...

A little bit of history worth seeing and finding out about. Good photo opportunity. Watch the traffic. Love the fact it chimes twice once for the time and the second to remind you.

Centrally located it's certainly worth a visit. Old Victorian clock tower in the centre of Victoria at the site of city's old central main crossroads.

This isn't really a 'sight' as such though I know it's a monument of Victoria. More like a little clock in the middle of a road roundabout. Worth looking at if your passing but I wouldn't make a special trip!
