About
The Bell Tower is one of the most unique things to see in Perth. The Bell Tower Experience tour 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 monarch since George II in 1727. The Bell Tower is also home to the 6,500kg ANZAC Bell, which is rung at 12pm everyday (1pm ANZAC Day 25 April). To maximise your experience we recommend bookings the premium ANZAC Bell Tour.

My WA friends said that I could expect a pretty average experience but in the interests of seeing all that is Perth I still went.... Really glad I did. Some very unique things to do see and hear. And by unique, I mean unique in the world..... I don't want to give anything away suffice to say, it was well worth the visit. Our tour guide Jeff was very friendly and knowledgeable also. Thanks team #perthbelltower.

Make sure you visit when the Bell Ringers are ringing, it is fabulous. Sit and watch the bells ringing and watch the ringers on a screen.
The Anzac Bell rings at 12, it is very moving and beautiful.
Great history and stories of bells through out.
Staff were lovely and friendly, a great experience.
