From the towering glass spire of the Bell Tower, one of the largest musical instruments in the world fills Perth City with its chimes. The bells are the original (circa Fourteenth Century) bells of St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church, the parish church of Buckingham Palace in Trafalgar Square, London.
It’s one of the few places on Earth where interactive demonstrations allow visitors to see the ancient art of bell ringing in action and have a go at ringing the bells.
In addition to the St. Martin bells, the Bell Tower recently installed the ANZAC Bell. It’s the largest bell of its kind ever made in Australia and was cast in Perth. The ANZAC Bell is expected to last over 500 years and weighs 6,500 kilograms.
The interpretive displays share some impressive insights into the history of the bells and bell ringing. The open air observation deck is perched on the sixth floor and boasts stunning views of the Swan River and City.
This award-winning attraction is located in Barrack Square – where the City meets the Swan River and is just a five-minute stroll from the City Centre – making it one of the most visited must-see attractions in Perth.
