You’ve probably walked past it many, many times as you’ve ambled around Tsim Sha Tsui, but how much do you actually know about the iconic Clock Tower?
Standing proudly on the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, the Clock Tower is an eye-catching red brick and granite tower soaring 44 meters into the air. It was originally part of the Kowloon-Canton Railway terminus, and while the once-bustling station is long gone, the Clock Tower remains. The Kowloon icon was listed as a Declared Monument in the 1990s. While you probably won’t get inside these days, rumour is that a steep wooden staircase gives thrill seekers access to the top of the tower.
