Clock Tower, Victoria

Historic Site · Landmark
A little monument with a big history, Clock Tower remains a beloved landmark in the heart of the city. Referred to locally as "Lorloz," the clock represents an exact replica of Little Ben on Victoria Street in London, ordered by Seychelles Governor Ernest Sweet-Escort after admiring the original in the British capital. Created by the same company as its London cousin, the clock was erected in 1903, in memory of Queen Victoria and to celebrate the Seychelles' newly acquired status as a Crown colony. Hear the clock chime on the hour every hour on one of Victoria's busiest roundabouts. With our online itinerary creator, Victoria attractions like Clock Tower can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Nice clock tower and it is a good place to use for directions as it's close to the market, the bus station and no too far from the botanic garden.  more »
  • Nice spot where you see the town centre. Local small shops are around which sell some local clothes.  more »
