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.

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