The Clock Tower

Montreal ( Montréal )

Get up close and personal to this heritage treasure honouring men of the Merchant Navy lost at sea during the First World War.

Built between 1919 and 1922, the Clock Tower’s elegant Fine-Art architecture and four clock faces make it unique.  Interesting fact: the clock’s mechanism, designed by the English firm Gillett & Johnston, is an exact replica of London’s Big Ben. This landmark structure once served to beautify the landscape at a time when the port was filled with hangers and warehouses.

192 steps to a breathtaking view!

Today, the Clock Tower proudly faces the St Lawrence River; beckoning visitors to climb its observatory and enjoy a magnificent view of the river, city and quays.
