General information

Albert Memorial Clock
Albert Memorial Clock

Until a recent renovation corrected its tilt, the Albert Memorial Clock was Belfast’s answer to Pisa’s leaning tower. Erected in 1865 in Gothic style to commemorate Queen Victoria’s consort, Prince Albert, it was tall enough at 113ft, to offer an excellent vantage point for at least one enterprising sightseer to get a birds-eye view of Titanic’s launch.

Built on land reclaimed from the River Lagan, the "Albert Clock" features a statue of Prince Albert as well as ornately carved crowned lions and floral decorations.

Opening times

Access to the interior of the building is not available to the public.
