The Bell Tower (Adult)
The Bell Tower is one of the largest musical instruments in the world! Custom built to house the historically significant bells (made in 1725) of the Saint Martin in the Fields church, the parish church of Buckingham Palace in Trafalgar Square, London.
The towering glass spire of the Bell Tower is located where Perth meets the Swan River in vibrant Barrack Square. It is here you’ll find the impressive 6,500kg ANZAC Bell along and revel in the stunning views of the Swan River and Perth City from the Observation Deck.
For real music and history buffs, you’ll find it thoroughly enjoyable to explore rare and fascinating artifacts, historic bells from cultures in displays that line the gallery walls.
The Bell Tower offers visitors fascinating displays on these famous bells and the ancient art of bell ringing, as well as stunning views of Perth city skyline and the Swan River from the sixth floor open air Observation Deck. Have a go at an interactive Bell Chiming Experience where you can try the art of bell ringing yourself. Learn about the history of the Bell Tower and the historic royal bells.
