"It chimed for Six O'clock" Top 5 Page for this destination London Off The Beaten Path Tip by sourbugger

London Off The Beaten Path: 1,665 reviews and 2,941 photos

  Glockenspeil in Leicester square
by sourbugger

There was a group of us heading towards the restaurant for the BIG london meeting of 21/01/06. As we passed by the Swiss Centre in the NW corner of Leicester square the distinctive clanging and chiming of the clock on the side of the building began. The little figures proceeded with the Swiss like clockwork regularity. (not seen on the photo)

Sad to say, no one took a photo - the call of the restaurant must have been too great.

UPDATE 2014 : The clock was saved ! and is now a free standing structure in the same area

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
