This is one of the Victoria's landmark situated in the centre of town at the crossroads...it is a copy of big ben but small size & not as impressive.

Not that much to look at, but serves a focal point for orientation about centre town. A small copy of a London clock tower.

The Clock Tower is at the centre of four roads in the centre of town. Always catches the eye. Is well over 100 years old and well worth seeing - based on the design at Vauxhall Bridge in London. Well worth seeing.

This curious structure has an almost iconic status in Victoria and appears to represent a meeting or central point in the city. It looks like a copy of big ben but apparently is a copy of a structure on one of London's bridges

While the location makes it quite difficult to get up close to this clock tower it is a central feature of Victoria and ties the island back to London and Victorian times. The tower has lasted remarkably well given the environment!

If you're in Victoria you should check this out as it's one of the classic images. It's a beautiful clock tower and an interesting spot to experience the local traffic.
