It is possible to walk on the Corniche from the Scientific Centre past the Kuwait Towers all the way to the Dhow Harbour by the Fish Market. Here one has to go away from the sea and follow the wide Arabian Gulf Street. The reason is the over 200'000 sqm closed off area of the Seif Palace, the main government building of Kuwait together with the Bayan Palace southeast from here.

Over the fences it is possible to catch glimpses of the attractive construction following in its design principles of Islamic desert architecture. Especially visible is the clock tower decorated with blue tiles and a small golden cupola. Across the Seif Square by the palace is the Grand Mosque.

The beginnings of the palace, also known as Al-Diwan Al-Amiri, go back to 1904, but since then there haven been 3 expansions, the last one ending in 1992, after the Iraqi invasion.

Not a tourist attraction
the only thing is seeing it from out side
and the wisdom on the gate

This sprawling palace is not open to the public. No photographs either. The Big Ben type clock tower is pretty, but this site only deserves a quick drive by.

The palace can be seen from the Grand Mosque. Only the entrance is visible. The rest is hidden behind a wall. Nothing to see or do there.

Al Seef Palace is not open for general public. If I am correct this is the house for Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kuwait and Al DIwan Al Amiri. Beware of taking pictures of governmental buildings as it might be considered as offence. The main clock tower is central in the group of buildings. The square in front of the tower is taken by fountain with national Coat of Arms. Seef Palace survived invasion in 1990 and clock tower was destroyed by missile and reconstructed later. Original building is dated back in 1906-7. Grand Mosque of Kuwait is located across the street opposite Seef Palace. Basically this is not tourist attraction, however, architecture is featured.

Not open to the puiblic. Take a picture from the mosque....NOT from the street as that is discouraged. They give you a nice history on the mosque tour.
