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.

  • The busiest street in the country, most tourists are here, some hidden cafes and places can be found around! Well organized, giving an European style to the country! At night is so empty and calm! Only waiting for the Xmas decoration
  • Victoria theres not much to see to be honest, for a 1-2 Hours tour you get to see all that’s there to see… anyway is okay to see the capital of the seychelles, but don’t expect anything special
