the Albert Clock
Belfast's very own leaning tower, the Albert Memorial Clock is a memorial to Queen Victoria's husband. It was built on reclaimed marshland by the river Farset - which is presumably why it now leans more than four feet off the vertical.
The immediate area around the Albert Clock was once notorious as a place for prostitutes. But the whole area has now been (literally and metaphorically) cleaned up, and adjoins Customs House Square, a popular venue for family and musical events.
