    Located close to Leichester Square, the Swiss Glockenspiel is a cute decorative clock which, on an hourly basis, becomes a musically fun sight for all the family to watch if within the area. The clock...  more »

    On our way to Leichester Square, we came across this Glockenspiel! Very cool! We happened to be there when it rang. The little statues moved around as it played music.  more »

    Among the shops Lego and M & Ms between Leicester Square and Piccadilly Museum everyone stumbles with this monumental mechanical watch, gift of Switzerland in which a part of give time and playing a special music you can see shields of all the cantons that make up Switzerland, as well as if in the distance see the bucolic rotary movement of animated figures that represent Swiss folklore. Such is the people which crosses and passes by his side who stop to look at the details of it is very complicated.

  • somehow liked it very much.... and the clock rings on round time... and interesting view together with the China Town gate..!
  • Remember this to be in the Swiss center and amazing clock in the heart of Leicester Square. A great stopping point to hear the click chimes
  • Very beautiful clock but when the bells ring it's very loud and it plays for a long time. Nice to look at but the sound isn't really for me.
  • Interesting monument. The music appears to be recorded as the bells do not chime. It's also a bit noisy.
  • A joyfull way to get notice of the hourse :)

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
