Albert Memorial Clock Tower - Review
The most prominent timepiece of the city built in the memory of queen Victoria’s better half between 1865 and 1870 flaunts its beauty shining as a magnificent attraction in Belfast today. The tilted clock, however corrected now during a recent renovation, was once a historic tussle to Pisa's leaning tower. Although the interiors of the structure are not accessible to public, the exteriors are sufficient to charm you.

Albert Memorial Clock Tower, Belfast Reviews
The city of Belfast is quite beautiful and this is right near the center. The clock tower stands above the surrounding buildings and brings it a very nice look. The city is fairly small so you can walk across it all with no issue and walking is great with crosswalks and large sidewalks. The clock itself has an interesting little history noted on the plaque next to it. Build for a tiny sum (although likely a lot when converted to today) it started to lean and had to be fixed for a much larger amount. It is in memory of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband.
Interesting history behind the building. Definitely a must to visit in Belfast.
I nice old clock tower, showing it's age with a noticeable lean. Except unlike other leaning twoers, you don't have people posing for photos trying to hold it up. Located in between the city centre and the River Lagan, it's a nice attraction to pass by on your way to other places.
Cool place to see. It’s like the leaning tower of Pisa. Read the plaque.
Belfasts answer to Big Ben.
