This clock isn't really a tourist attraction. There's nothing here really, just a cool clock by the road with some historical story probably. Stopped here on a walking tour. It leans a little to one side.

It is the city's Big Ben. Located in the heart of the city where all the shopping takes place. Worth seing from outside.

Built as a memorial to Prince Albert, the German husband of Queen Victoria it leans 1.2 metres because the wooden piles that support it are sinking. Nevertheless it has some attractive decorative stonework.

Worth the walk past. Has beautiful carvings and striking in the middle of the city. In a square with a modern fountain which is also worth the visit.

Situated just a few yards from our hotel we passed this several times, but it was only when informed on the bus tour that we realised how much it was leaning, due to the wooden supports. The clock was not working when we were there!...More
