The Albert Clock is a monument to Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria. He died young. You can see his statue half way up it. It is a big 140 year old clock tower which has seen some terrible times in Belfast. Nazi bombers...More

It's not the biggest clock tower and as others have said, maybe not worth a walk in the rain to see it up close, but it's curious because of the lean. Probably worth a google to see if it's something that really interests you enough...More

It's a nice clock, can be seen from the Castle Place/High Street just off Royal Avenue/Donegal Place (main shopping street) so wouldn't really recommend a walk down- you can see it from there and that's pretty much it.

Had a bit of trouble searching for this Clock as it rained hard while on the way to see it. When we got to the clock, it was just a nice looking big clock. Nothing special or outstanding to be honest if you have seen...More

The clock showed the right time and is a key identification marker in Belfast. It's leaning which is fun and they have used concrete instead of wood to support it now so it's safe!

Nice architecture on this clock tower. Located just before the pedestrian bridge that leads to the Titanic Quarter.

Wonderful old clock tower who's foundation has been tilting to the side, It has 4 separate clock faces and each one says a different time. The design is actually quite stunning and was wonderful to walk around and admire,

Impressive clock tower that is Belfast's very own leaning tower of Pisa. The river flows under the street there and has caused the tower to lean at an angle.

Nice clock on the way to the waterfront. Big but not overly fancy. An appreciation of the prince in another day

Yes, this is a nice clock in a tower. the history around it is nice. But overall, it is just nice to see,

I liked this. It was a nice piece of architecture that at first reminded me of a mini Big Ben. It is worth looking upon while visiting Belfast and perhaps passing nearby.
