Located where Edward Street dead ends into Fort Street, the Clock Tower is an attractive memorial to King George V and is often used as a meeting place. While not a must see it is located in front of the equally attractive 1919 Peace Memorial and near Heroes Square and worth a quick look if in the area.

The Clock Tower in Georgetown is simply put, nothing special. The central square in this tiny island nation shows off a bit of history, that said, it's really just a clock on a tower. It's not majestic or flashy, I just saw it in the background while enjoying some sun and watching my daughter play in the fountain adjacent to the attraction. If walking around downtown Georgetown, you will notice, but it's not like you should make time for this Clock Tower!

Nice clock in Georgetown, not a must see but still if you are walking the city,neat for a quick photo. It's a good place to center walking tour around. near the bus terminal.

It's not a very tall or imposing tower. It is in front of "The Peace Memorial" which is just a building from what we could tell... No way to go inside and no placard explaining anything. The most interesting thing about the clock tower is the monument across the street, recognizing the women who fought for the right to vote (which they didn't get until 1958!!!)

This is certainly not something worth going out of your way to see. But if you are in the area, sure, why not.

I was very dissapointed with this. It is attached to a building which isn't even open an there is very little history about how or why it is even here. If you are wandering the city and have nothing better to do go and look at it, but do not go out of your way.
