The Clock Tower

This will bring on a smile

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 4 stars

This is a new tower built to commemorate His Majesty the King's 80th birthday and to replace an old and tatty version.

It's gold, gaudy, brash and something of an assault on the eyes, but it really comes into its own at night. It doesn't do its tricks every evening and the timings seem a bit sporadic, but if you are passing the Clock Tower one night it may just give you a light show to remember. Every colour and hue is used, from lime green to outrageous pink as the Tower performs its own version of a bad disco. The show lasts for about 20 minutes and seems to start at around 20:00.

    I wish my town had one of these on a busy roundabout!
    Light show was on at 7, 8 and 9pm for five minutes each time.
    I love that traffic continues all around the clock tower whilst it's being such a spectacular distraction
