What people are saying:

The clock tower is the only remaining building of the Kowloon-Canton Railway Station, built in 1915, and is located on the side of the Star Ferry Terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui. This is a landmark of Kowloon and a symbol of the steam train era. It was originally located in the Kowloon Railway Station. It has been listed as a legal monument in Hong Kong. The exterior of the bell tower is simple and elegant, visitors can only watch from the outside, and are not allowed to enter the bell tower.

Additional Information

Introduction

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.
