HK’s seat of government also offers relaxing harbourside views

The Central Government Complex was opened in 2011, housing central government offices, the Legislative Council chamber and the office of the Chief Executive. Adjacent to the complex is Tamar Park. The district in which the complex sits is also known as Admiralty, named after the British naval dockyard that occupied the site; Tamar derives from HMS Tamar, the British naval ship that arrived in Hong Kong in 1897. The government buildings are a blend of Postmodern architecture and no-frills International Style; the park offers views over the harbour and includes landscaped gardens, a water feature, floating platform and an amphitheatre.
