It's nice to see a piece of historic property standing in its glory! Don't miss it. It's a rare site in Christchurch these days.

A beautiful clock tower. Great restoration job. It sparkles in the sunlight. Easily spotted as you approach. Very close to the Spice Paragon, which has yummy Thai food.

Visited on Tuesday 22nd May. We got to see the Clock Tower as we were going into Christchurch on the bus and again on the return journey. Good to see it survived the earthquake.

Read the plaque to discover the unusual history of this clocktower. The drinking fountain supplied by an underground aquifer has not been restored.

Nice landmark worth a stop if passing by to take a photo or two, but I wouldn't make a special trip or go out of my way for it.

Good to see (particularly at night) if you're passing by - but not worth making a journey to search it out.

I spotted this tower on the way to the famous mural. I liked the design. If you have a plan to go to Hagley park then maybe quick stop would be a good idea.

The Victoria Street Clock Tower is a great relic of a bygone age standing proudly on its own in a sort of square precinct. It is well worth the effort of finding if you are nearby.
