  • Citadel Hill, a historic spot for all visitors, the Town Clock overlooks the city downtown, a great view from the hill, while there visit historic Citadel Hill.  more »
  • Pretty clock tower. Unable to access interior, just view from outside. Broken glass from alcohol bottle outside.  more »
  • It is the main icon of the city. Unfortunately it was closed, but it's worth at least taking a picture, because it's as much a part of Halifax as Canada's history.  more »

  • Probably the most iconic monument in Halifax. Sits on Citadel Hill overlooking the harbour and downtown area. The clock works and it's a place people go to sit in the grass and relax with lunch.
  • Another pic of the Old Town Clock.Part of Halifax's history.Prince Edward,Duke of Kent built the clock because of the tarty solders showing up for duty.So hard to get help and to show up on time.You walk around the city,you get a scene of the old and the new of Halifax.Glad to see the clock still works so that the good people of Halifax can show up for work on time.
  • Great view of the city from this hill.
  • The Old Town Clock is an important landmark in Halifax and offers a nice stopping point when ascending Citadel Hill.
  • Great place to visit.
