If you’ve been to the Civic District, you’ve probably heard a chime that goes off every 15 minutes. This is none other than the Westminster chime from the iconic Clock Tower at the Victoria Theatre & Victoria Concert Hall.

As Singapore’s second oldest building, the clock tower is steeped in rich history. 

If you’re big on history and architecture or if you just want to be like Hugo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, you’d be happy to know that the Clock Tower is now open to the public!

The Clock Tower Climb is a 60-minute in-person tour which allows visitors to climb the 54m tall tower whilst learning about the internal workings of the tower’s five bells. Along the way, stops will also be made at Victoria Theatre, the foyer with a floating Rubik’s Cube installation and the Heritage Gallery.

At exactly 199 steps, the climb up is definitely not going to be the easiest, but you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of the city at the top.
