Its a clock

Do not get too excited about it, its a clock in some water. If you are passing get a look, if not, dont got there to find it.

Had a visit to the clock while out wandering round the harbour with the bride, canny little attraction to get a couple of holiday snaps of our happy times in St Helier. Worth a look if your passing but not worth a taxi fare to get there for a look.

This was an interesting feature near the harbour. It didn't do anything whilst we were there and the time was out by 5 minutes. OK to look at if you are passing but wouldn't go out of my way to visit it.

Not much to tell, nice to see and located in a good place next to the maritime museum and yacht mole. More information about the clock could be made available to visitors as there is very little signage.

Well, this is nothing to write home about. It was something to look at, which did not take long. It did not appear to be working. Disappointing.

It is what it is. Nothing exciting. Only workers from Norman's and few people on a few boats can actually read the clock.

Walking towards the clock it looks like a full size ship, once you get closer it looks like part of a ship. From a distance you can see a clock between the funnels and when you get up to it there are warnings about steam, but where it was a cold day and there was no steam. The paddles go... More

I went here with family it was nice to look at a shame I didn't know what it actually was or I would have found it more interesting, it was worth a visit and i hope next time we go (with me knowing more about it) that it is fuctioning

Nice to look at, but a lot more could have been done with this space. Pretty boring place to sit and too near traffic belting out fumes for my liking.

It was amazing to see a steam clock but unfortunately it wasn't functioning the day I went, still it's a beautiful clock and well worth a visit- if you go to the maritime museum it's around the back of the building!
