THE BELL TOWER
The Bell Tower
From the towering glass spire of The Bell Tower, one of the largest musical instruments in the world fills Perth's city air with its chimes and invites you to try your hand at bell ringing. It's quite a privilege when you consider these are the original (circa 14th Century) bells of Saint Martin in the Fields Church - the parish church of Buckingham Palace in Trafalgar Square, London.[Click for full map view]
Located in Barrack Square, where the city meets the Swan River, The Bell Tower is just a five minute stroll from the city centre - making it one of the most visited must see attractions in Perth.
It's one of the few places on Earth where interactive demonstrations allow you to see the ancient art of bell ringing in action and have a go yourself.
The interpretive displays also share some impressive insights into the history of the bells and bell ringing. And from the open air observation deck, perched on the sixth floor, you can stand and take in 360 degree views of the city skyline and Swan River.
