The clock tower is part of the Kowloon Canton railway station, and is now the only structure remains. The railway station has completely been demolished and was moved to Hung Hom.

Part of the early Colonial history of Kowloon. Great to see they have retained the clock Tower and opened it up for people to see and enjoy.
