Overview

The Bell Tower is one of the most unique things to see in Perth. Their is the opportunity to participate in the The Bell Tower Experience which gives you a fascinating insight into the one of the most unique facilities in the world! You can learn all about the history of the bells and the Tower, the ancient art of bell ringing and you will get to chime a famous bell and receive a souvenir certificate. Twelve of the 18 bells in this tower came from London's St.Martin-in-the-Fields church in Trafalgar Square as a Bicentenary gift to the people of Western Australia in 1988. Originally cast in the 13th century and recast in the 16th and 18th centuries, they were rung at the homecoming of James Cook after his voyage of discovery in 1771, after the Battle of El Alamein in 1942 and at the coronation of every British monach since George II in 1727.

Walked past on my way to Elizabeth Quay. Its a lovely modern piece of architecture. Loved the water features and padlocks with names on and spent some time just sitting and taking in all of the names and the memories that each padlock must hold
