After looking up at the clocks so many times in my life, I finally found myself behind the faces, in the clock room atop this historic tower. The clock mechanism itself has been beautifully restored, and is a marvel of precision. The original wooden hands...More

We had planned to visit this tower, but we had a nice view of it from our hotel room and unfortunately never got to visit it.

The tower is truly magnificent amongst the modern buildings. It has a lovely face and reminds us of bygone times. The colour of the stone is lovely against a blue sky.
