Hard to resist not to like about all these copies of 'Big Ben' ...

A classic 'landmark' in central Belfast, which of course is reminiscent of England and London, but still feels like an 'odd bird' in a city that is more Irish than English ...

We had a funny experience in Belfast. We were asking a local for some directions. After he helped us he said, "See that clock down the street? See how it is tilting a little? Well, I am an Irish Republican. Go over and give it a little push." The clock itself wasn't anything more or less amazing than the other... More

A clock tower recently saved from collapse, I believe due to undermined foundations. Named after Prince Albert it still leans a wee bit' the locals would say He has the inclination if you have the time.

Nice big clock to commemorate Prince Albert. Small water park behind it. Not much else going on around here besides a bus stop.

Interesting piece of architecture on the banks of the river Lagan close to the High Street. There was a rally taking place in the square next to the memorial but do not be put off, there are lots of rallies in Belfast, it's part of their wonderful culture.

This is a monument to Prince Albert Queen Victoria's husband. It has been cleaned up a few years back and looks well. It had been built on wooden piles on a reclaimed marsh and unfortunately leans a bit to one side. It is right beside the Lagan river where there is quite a bit to see and it is near... More

It's a nice landmark in the middle of the road. Just take a picture and move on. Lots of cafes and eateries around. Nice walk, too.

I have passed by the clock a thousand times while on business in Belfast but never noticed the distinct slant. Like the story about the youngster who climbed the clock to watch Titanic being launched.
