Standing at a height of 44 metres, this distinctive red brick and granite tower is a graceful reminder of the Age of Steam and is also known as the Canton Railway Clock Tower. Erected in 1915 as a part of the Kowloon-Canton Railway terminus, it is a declared monument and a memorable landmark for millions of Chinese immigrants for whom the former terminus was the beginning of their new life not just in Hong Kong, but in other parts of the world via the city’s harbour. A wooden staircase leads to the top of the tower where you can find a 7-metre lightning rod.
