    In spite of its infamy, I always found the University of Texas Clock Tower in Austin Texas to be attractive

    And as an example of beauty is in the eye of the beholder - one of my favorite "clock towers" was the Longines clock (it was a 'tower' to me) above Griffith Stadium in Washington DC where I saw my first dozen or so baseball games to be one of my favorites with warm memories (no, I didn't see the Mick's blast below - I wasn't born yet

      Yes, the UT Clock Tower is gorgeous as well as the Piazza San Marco in Venice.

    I have been blessed to have seen the Clock Tower in Prague many times for business travel.  It never got old seeing it as I entered Old Town almost every evening during my stays.

    Boston Custom House. This is a Marriott time share property. There is a public walkway located above the clocks that gives awesome views of Boston, day or night. The Custom House is located perfectly for visiting Boston. There is a T-Rail stop right outside the front door of the Custom House which will take you just about anywhere you would want to go. The pictures were taken from the Rose Kennedy Parkway which is a park built on top of the Big Dig tunnel.

    What about this one in Ireland ? Does it qualify .... not exactly a tower?
