About Former Kowloon-Canton Railway Clock Tower

Standing 44 m tall, the former Kowloon-Canton Railway Clock Tower was erected in 1915 as part of the Kowloon–Canton Railway terminus. The once-bustling station is long gone, but this red brick and granite tower, now preserved as a Declared Monument, survives as an elegant reminder of the Age of Steam. It has also been a memorable landmark for the millions of Chinese immigrants who passed through the terminus to begin new lives not just in Hong Kong, but in other parts of the world via the city’s harbor. Located at one end of the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade, it is a great location from which to view Victoria Harbour and the stunning Hong Kong skyline.

    Tsim Sha Tsui Bell Tower was built in 1915 on the former Kowloon-Guangzhou Railway Bell Tower, 45 meters high. In the Kowloon Railway Station, the main body is made of red bricks, with marble inlaid at four corners and lightning rods 7 meters high on the roof. In 1975, when the Kowloon Railway Station was relocated, the Bell Tower was the only remaining building, indicating that it used to be the starting point of the Kowloon-Canton Railway and was regarded as the landmark of Kowloon. The Bell Tower is facing Victoria Harbour. It used to have a big copper bell. Every night, the sound of the big copper bell can be transmitted several miles away. The melodious "Victoria Harbour Bell" once was a scene of Hong Kong.

    The Bell Tower left behind by the Kowloon-Guangzhou Railway has a beautiful night view. Next to it are the Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui Wharf and the scenic spots of the Fantasy Wing Xiangjiang River. It's very convenient to walk to these places. You can take pictures of the Bank of China Building and other landmarks on the opposite side of the sea.

    It's right next to Victoria Harbour and near Tsim Sha Tsui. Located in Hong Kong Cultural Center Square, built of red brick and granite, the bell tower is equipped with clocks on all sides. Against the background of blue sky and white clouds, it is very dazzling and beautiful building landmarks.

    Hong Kong's statutory monuments. The Bell Tower is the most ideal starting point for visiting Tsim Sha Tsui. Like a lighthouse, it combines modern history with modern high-rise buildings, showing traces of development.

    After Tsim Sha Tsui, if you are traveling, you can come here and have a look at the bell tower, which witnesses the development of the old era of Hong Kong. It's about five minutes from the other side of the harbour city. You can walk straight to the seaside. The view is quite good. If the weather is good, you can see the whole Victoria Harbour. The shape of the Bell Tower is a bit modern and a bit old. It is in line with the diversified reality of Hong Kong, beside which there is a platform for sea watching.

    From Hong Kong Island to Tsim Sha Tsui on the Star Ferry, as soon as you leave the dock and look up on your right hand, you can see the bell tower, behind which is the arc-shaped Hong Kong Cultural Center. Bell Tower is the most easily recognized landmark building in Tsim Sha Tsui. It was erected here in 1915. It was originally a part of the old Tsim Sha Tsui Railway Station on the Guangzhou-Kowloon Railway. With the change of history, the main railway station has long disappeared, leaving only this bell tower. The bell tower is full of colony color, red brick and granite construction, showing the style of the steam train era.

    Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower, located near the Star Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui, is the landmark of Tsim Sha Tsui, the symbol of the original Kowloon-Canton Railway and the symbol of the steam train era. After its opening in 1921, it was part of the old railway station of the Kowloon-Canton Railway. Later, the station was demolished in the mid-1970s. The Bell Tower remained on its original site and was listed as a statutory monument in Hong Kong. The bell tower is 45 meters high and its appearance is simple and elegant. Travelers can only watch it outside, but can not enter the inside of the bell tower.

    To Tsim Sha Tsui Pier, take the Star Ferry to Central, and discover the bell tower of the former Kowloon-Canton Railway, a very beautiful landmark building. The square beside the Bell Tower is decorated with lanterns, which are colorful, probably because the Chinese Spring Festival is coming soon. Although it is an international metropolis, Hong Kong's traditional flavor is strong.
