That was a Friday when I visit the Clock Tower. It is cold, windy, foggy and raining that day! The clock tower is under maintenance and I was quite disappointed that day...😢

The travel agency put it in our itinerary but when we came down there.... it was covered by construction steels or something. Looks to me it was under renovation. Too bad no announcement made earlier.

A nice clock tower, but without any history or information that we could find nearby - without looking at the internet we would have no idea of its significance. We took a photo of it and only later learned more in a guidebook. Great views of the city from nearby this location though.
