Overview

Anyone who knows about the Noonday Gun will remember Noel Coward's 1924 song, "Mad Dogs and Englishmen," which tells the world: "In Hong Kong they strike a gong, and fire off a noonday gun, to reprimand each inmate, who's in late." This historic relic, built in 1901, is still fired everyday and is the best-known landmark in Causeway Bay. It is situated in a small garden on Gloucester Road right across from the Excelsior Hotel.
