Clock Tower Beach, Montreal

3.0
#1 of 15 in Beaches in Quebec
Montreal Clock Tower is located in Quai de l'Horloge, originally called the Victoria Pier, in the Old Port of Montreal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Also called The Sailors' Memorial Clock, the cornerstone was laid by the Prince of Wales, on Oct. 31, 1919, with the 45-metre tower completed two years later as a memorial to the Canadian sailors who died in the First World War. The original plans called for the clockworks to be connected to five bells that would chime every hour, but the carillon was never built. The clock was constructed in Croydon, England by the firm of Gillett & Johnston, and its mechanism is similar to the one that drives Big Ben at the Palace of Westminster.
Visitors can make the 192-step climb to take in the view.

  • Like everything else in Montreal in the summer of 2019, hard to get around due to all the construction 🚧. Parking and finding streets to get around were tough.  more »
  • it is just at the end of the old montreal port, there is nothing specifically special or great about this, you may as well skip it if you do not want to take that short walk to the other corner.  more »
