Clock Tower Beach, Montreal

3.2
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Quebec
Montreal Clock Tower is located in Quai de l'Horloge, originally called the Victoria Pier, in the Old Port of Montreal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.OverviewAlso called The Sailors' Memorial Clock, the cornerstone was laid by the Prince of Wales, on Oct. 31, 1919, with the 45-metre tower completed two years later as a memorial to the Canadian sailors who died in the First World War. The original plans called for the clockworks to be connected to five bells that would chime every hour, but the carillon was never built. The clock was constructed in Croydon, England by the firm of Gillett & Johnston, and its mechanism is similar to the one that drives Big Ben at the Palace of Westminster.Visitors can make the 192-step climb to take in the view.

  • The Clock Tower Beach is a tiny beach area next to the Clock Tower situated on the St. Lawrence River. It is unique because it is in the Old Town of Montreal next to the seawall. Nice umbrellas to sit...  more »
  • Hello, walk you along the River to the Clock Tower, go up the stairs and enjoy the view. Kind regards

  • But I guess you'll have to go better in another season, because in the autumn, you can not upload, and the opportunity to soak up the Sun (that is like a small beach) is not, so the watch looks good in the distance. We avoid travel by that.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
