Together, the pair of Star Ferry Piers in Central and Tsim Sha Tsui represents one of the great modern and organic architectural buildings in Hong Kong, structures that grew naturally in their cityscape environment. The expansive horizontal windows on the second floor of the waiting area frame the skyline on the opposite side of the harbour. Standing in front of this immersive tableau belies the impression that you have already arrived on the other side of the water. The Central Star Ferry Clock Tower in Edinburgh Place is also the last mechanical antique clock in Hong Kong that can be described as “Hong Kong’s version of Big Ben”. The Star Ferry Clock and its Westminster Chimes were manufactured by the same UK company that provided the mechanical signature to the famous London landmark.
