Description

The historic Albert clock is Belfast's very own leaning tower.

Erected in 1865 in Gothic style to commemorate Queen Victoria's consort, Prince Albert, the Albert Memorial Clock was built on reclaimed land from the River Lagan on wooden piles, causing the characteristic list. At 113ft, it was tall enough to offer an excellent vantage point for at least one enterprising sightseer to get a birds-eye view of Titanic's launch.
The Albert Clock features a statue of Prince Albert as well as ornately carved crowned lions and floral decorations and a two-tonne bell inside.
