i just wish that it was cordoned off from traffic so that if you wanted to sit around it and picnic you were not trying to dodge motorists. all in all it was beautiful.

A fake is a fake. I see no reason why a fake and tiny looks-like Big Ben should be commented about. Definitely not a place worth visiting and wasting one's time.

The clock tower is located in the middle of the main town of Victoria. It is an interesting feature and sits in the middle of a round about making it easy to see. It's worth a look if you are interested in history - and it's free to see.

It stands majestic, but small in stature right in the middle of Victoria welcoming visitors. Charming and illuminating . You just can't miss this feature.

The center of Mahe, the lighting for Christmas around the tower were brilliant and had an old word charm to it

This attraction reminds you of Europe in the middle of the Indian Ocean Islands. It is the centre of town in the true sense, worth a visit. You cannot get close for a photograph, as it is situated on a traffic circle. Take a snapshot and move on to "The Pirates Arms"!

It is peculiar to find a miniature British Victorian clock tower in a tropical island, but that is all there is to it. It is a cute little thing but nothing to go and see especially. Everyone visiting Victoria is bound to run into it at some point anyway.

Nothing particullar about the small clock tower, but fine as a central point to a non too attractive city
