We went to see this. It is one of a kind I suppose, we had never seen one like it before anywhere. In good condition, well kept. Worth a look if your at the marina.

What a feature for anyone walking or driving around St Helier. New yachts and an old steam clock both fascinating in their own way!! Well worth the visit do not just pass it by!!

It looks like a piece of an old steam boat with a clock in between the chimneys. Apart from the hands of time, there is no (steam) activity whatsoever.

This was a most unusual thing to find on the front in St.Hellier. A must see. If you like funny clocks then this is a must.

The steam clock is free but does not seem to do anything significant. We passed by on many occasions but it makes a noise on the hour but to be honest my alarm clock is more interesting. Sorry but i see no point in this at all

Not sure why this is classed as an attraction. It's an interesting piece of artwork. Look at it for five minutes and move on.

Interesting Time Piece BUT like others I would say not worth going out your way to see UNLESS the pictures of it interest you enough to make a special trip, personally I think it is worth a look but my partner did not.

I was fascinated by the mixed reviews and had to have a look for myself today. Just to be clear there are no dancers. There is no steam. On the hour the water bubbles slightly and the ship's wheel spins. That's it. It's a lump of scrap iron in the middle of a concrete walk area which Jersey think so... More
