Overview
More
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.

I've done the tour. Seen the view and frankly I'm embarrassed as a Perth resident that we would charge people to see the bell tower. It should be free all year round and everyone given access. Why? Because it is just a glass tower made...More

A really interesting place to visit. It has great views of Perth from the top and across the Swan river. The tour is also worth doing with a great view of the bells, explanations and demos. Not to be missed

We paid our money to join the bell ringing and information tour. It was well worth the money for the unique experience of ringing one of the bells. We had a great time and Howard (our guide) was very knowledgeable and informative.

Have been here before but it is still worth a second visit, really has a feel of good old England as the bells came over from the UK as a gift to Perth
