Scenes from the Top : Clock

The four clocks are definitely an awesome sight. Standing directly under one, you develop a new appreciation for how beautiful in design and tremendous in scale they are. Each face is over twelve feet in diameter, and that gold you see sparkling in the sun is a genuine gold plate.

From up here you can really hear the Westminster chime striking the quarter hours and the hours on a three and a half ton bell that hangs in the square colonnade above the clock. There are a total of fifty-six bells in this, the largest carillon in Texas.
