  • Right on Leicester Square ... look, nepřejděte. It's nice and sweet. The minute there won't kill you, and quite nicely done, especially for children.

  • The Swiss clock (glockenspiel) is located on the entrance to Leicester Square (close to the M and M store) and is easy to walk by without looking. It is a great example of a glockenspiel and worth sto...  more »
  • The Swiss Glockenspiel was part of the Swiss Center at the corner of Leicester Square, had a Bank, a tourist office, chocolates and gifts shop, a cafe and several Swiss theme restaurants. Its demolition was agreed in 2008 and gave passage to the big stores Lego and M & Ms. But in 2011, the Swiss Glockenspiel, redesigned and restored by the watchmakers Smith of Derby was returned very near its original location. It is 10 meters tall, 27 bells, is controlled from Derby and wireless, plays new music written by the Royal Academy of music in London and the University of music and art in Berne. A couple of metres away, is a flagpole with 26 state flags of the Confederacy, which also used to be at the Swiss Centre. The Swiss Centre may be gone, but the Swiss Association lives with 26 state flags of the Confederacy and one can see and enjoy next to the clock in the heart of London. It is very pleasing to hear the tolling of the bells!

  • I love this attraction and would recommend to investigate further in this piece of historic masterpiece as it has a beautiful story behind it :v
  • 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.
