Bell Tower experience
Margaret_L, Sept 2023
Very interesting history around the. Bells and informative displays. Everyone got instruction on how to ring a bell and each person in the group got to ring a different sounding bell. At the top of the tower we could play from a range of melodies on the carillon which gave out a lovely sound. The modern glass building which houses the bells gives amazing views of the city. Had a good range of souvenirs available in the shop and they were very well priced compared to others around town. Highly recommended.
Bell Tower - Great Experience. To experience ringing the bells was something else

This is another unique experience in Perth. My husband and I totally enjoyed ringing the historic bells. I just realised that bell ringing is no easy job. Even the structure of tower is one of a kind as it is strategically located facing the Swan River. We truly enjoyed our experiences in Perth and we’re looking forward to coming back in the near future.
Great Experience

being bell ringers ourselves we wanted to see this set in action. We were delighted to not only see these bells from London and Ascot racecourse, we were allowed to play them. A really exceptional experience.
