Hong Kong Tsim Sha Tsui, Clock Tower of the Former Train Station

At the southernmost end of Tsim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong, at the Avenue of Stars, you can enjoy the night view of Hong Kong Island. It’s a place where you can witness the so-called million-dollar night view of Hong Kong.

Moreover, you can also find a historical monument here – the “Clock Tower,” which is the only remaining part of the former train station, standing guard over the location.

The existing Clock Tower is a 44-meter tall structure made of red granite, which was once part of the train station connecting the Kowloon (Kaolung) area and the Guangdong Province, built in 1915.

While the train station itself has been demolished, the Clock Tower, which symbolized the station, remains as a preserved monument in the Tsim Sha Tsui area.

“The Train Station Dismantled in the 1970s”

In the past, you could find the former train station in the vicinity of the Avenue of Stars. The train station was operational until the 1970s, after which it was dismantled due to the establishment of a new train station in Hung Hom.

Only the Clock Tower that once stood at the train station remains, serving as a testament to the historical site. The Clock Tower was designated as a historical monument of Hong Kong in the 1990s and continues to stand in its place to this day.

As a historical landmark in the vicinity of the Avenue of Stars in Tsim Sha Tsui, it holds even greater significance for those familiar with the history of old Hong Kong. While it may not be a place deliberately sought out for visitation, it is a location that one naturally encounters when heading to the Avenue of Stars and Star Ferry Terminal.
