Victorian clock tower

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!

All i can say is that this feature is not really worth a review. Its a clock - not so much of a tower. Cute, but thats it.

This sits on the junction alongside the local court. It is interesting sitting and watching the traffic go by. there are only one set of traffic lights in the whole of the Seychelles, although this may have changed as they are getting more traffic

Its the centre of the city with shops and restaurants all around. Bit difficult to get parking, but there's a paid parking lot nearby. Good for a walk and dine.

If you're driving on Mahé (and you should) you will pass the Tower at least twice probably queueing in traffic. It is a strange sight to behold, just stop and enjoy it for a few minutes.

In the middle of Victoria you find the white Clock Tower. I don't think it's terribly special, or something that you would particularly want to go and see, but instead you can take note of it while you're on your way to some other place.

Nicknamed Little Big Ben, this landmark is cute and definitely worth a drive/walk by. The square around it is not extremely picturesque and is actually quite busy so difficult to get a picture without a car whizzing in front of it. I can't recall if our guide said it had any historical significance but it was near the end of... More

Seychelles has a small city center & the clock tower sits right in the middle of a busy traffic junction close to the main post office, court house, banks & embassies... good number of shops around that area offering tourist options to buy local artifacts..
