The Albert Memorial Clock is located in Queens Square in Belfast, it is one of Belfast’s most famous landmarks. It was built in the years 1865 to 1869. The clock tower is known to have a slight lean. The tower cost £2500 to build, it stands at 113 feet tall and has a blend of Italian and French Gothic styles. Due to fears about the lean the clock tower has, a restoration project took place in 2002 and foundations were reinforced in order to protect against the lean worsening. During the restoration, the clock tower was also repaired due to damage caused by its location, which is close to an area that frequently has heavy traffic.
The Clocktower is situated in the centre of Belfast so is accessible on foot and not far from city centre bus stops.
