Clock Tower

The Clock Tower is unique in the country and still serves as a popular informal meeting place in the heart of the city of St Albans. Volunteers from the Civic Society open the Clock Tower for visitors during alternate weekends (sharing this voluntary activity with members of the St Albans & Hertfordshire Architectural & Archaeological Society) from Easter to the end of September and on other special occasions, such as the switch on of the Christmas lights.

More information about the Clock Tower is in the City Issues pages.

Help Wanted!

We have a valued group of people (known as Clockateers) who help us open the Clock Tower to the public, and anyone who could give a couple of hours at weekends would be very welcome. Visitors come from around the world and it is very rewarding to meet the variety of people who come to climb the 93 spiral steps to the top. More volunteers are always welcome, please contact Jill Singer on 838965 or or Dawn Wheeler on 865652.
