“It's a clock tower. That about sums it up.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

It's not a very tall or imposing tower. It is in front of "The Peace Memorial" which is just a building from what we could tell... No way to go inside and no placard explaining anything. The most interesting thing about the clock tower is the monument across the street, recognizing the women who fought for the right to vote (which they didn't get until 1958!!!)

This is certainly not something worth going out of your way to see. But if you are in the area, sure, why not.

“It's a tower, nothing more”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

I was very dissapointed with this. It is attached to a building which isn't even open an there is very little history about how or why it is even here. If you are wandering the city and have nothing better to do go and look at it, but do not go out of your way.

“A radius of Cayman history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

The Clock Tower was in a nice little radius of culture amid the shops and boutiques of George Town, that featured several landmarks such as the National Museum, Library and Post Office. It really doesn't make you go out of the way to stop and record a little something about your hosts. The buildings are pretty and well kept. They speak to the genteel quality of Cayman natives.

“George Town - HOME SWEET HOME - Historical Monument of Pride and Joy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

The Clock Tower is the Centre of George Town and a much loved local historical monument. Locals and tourists meet at the Clock Tower as the Landmark of choice. The Clock Tower located close to the Library and Heroes Square is the epitome and of Cayman Islands local pride and culture along with the Seafarer Monuments which are a reminder of the true bravery and heroism of Cayman Islands renowned Seafarers who are the absolute National Heroes and Internationally acclaimed as the best Maritime Seafaring Captains and Seafarers in the world . The Clock Tower and Monuments are a constant reminder of Cayman Islands proud and historical past and heroes past and present.
