Overview

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.

There is much to see here the views are so so it's not very tall it's not an iconic monument that you must see in Perth. This would suit schoolkids on a school excursion. If you don't have time give it a miss.

At 1st I was just going to go to the top for a view but got persuaded to do the tour and ring the bell which was great - worth the extra. The tour guide was informative and passionate about the Bells!

This attraction is spectacular. Visitors have to pay for the entrance fee for an entry to the tower.

its a nice place to see, near the wharf too so you don't even have to go out of your way to see it, which is nice because I wouldn't go out of my way to see it, its just not that impressive to me....More

the most boring expensive and inappropriate building ever-so far. The scenery around the tower and the riverside walk is great

I’m from the USA and the young man giving the “tour” (not so much a tour as a presentation) had a very thick accent so I had to work hard at understanding. However, that said, he was entertaining and very knowledgable. Getting a chance at...More
