My Dad and I went to this place, had pictures taken in front of the clock! My dad has since passed away but our memories there will last forever! You must go there!

We saw this site on our way down from The Citadel. It was a bit windy but that didn`t prevent us from looking around the site.

This is a point of interest that you will want to see while you are visiting the Citadel. Not really too much to do, but look at it a bit and take a picture.

I love cities with old town clocks, just beautiful. A must-see! Right on the edge of the Citadel Historic site. You can park and walk up to the Citadel.

I had seen photos of this clock and it is a beauty. Located in a part and with steps leading to the Citadel - take the time to enjoy it and the view. There are also a few benches if you just want to stay awhile.

The town clock can be seen from the waterfront and looking down to the waterfront and city view. It is located on Brunswick St., across the Scotiabank Centre and entrance towards the Citadel. Unfortunately, it does not look like you can go inside and up to the tower.

A must see but it only takes a couple of minutes. There are a lot of stairs to climb to get here. Location is easy to find but Halifax is mainly uphill or downhill, not a lot of flat surfaces.

If you stay at Prince George Hotel, you are walking distance to the old clock tower as well as the Citadel. The ideal location to take a photo of the old clock tower is on Carmichael street, looking up at the clock tower.

This is an important landmark of Halifax and can be seen from so many places from the downtown core. Although the city has been growing and changing this part of our history is still looking over us. It's a wonderful place to take a stroll especially during the summer.

As one walks from the fortress to the harbour ones comes face to face to the Old town Clock. As we past by there were a group of ladies out doing aerobics next to in on the public green.
