Cambridge has many historical buildings in its town centre, perhaps the most noticeable are the Cambridge Town Hall and Clock Tower. The hall was built in 1909 of Edwardian design and has forever been an iconic venue with character. The Clock tower was supplied by Littlejohn and Sons of Wellington in 1908 and was originally in a tower on the Post Office (now Alpino Restaurant). It was reconstructed at its current location in 1934.
