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.

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

To be truthful came here because it was somewhere to go indoors while it was raining. Ended up staying for ages it was so good. Go on the tour rather than just looking around yourself as the tour includes the opportunity to try ringing the bells yourself!! Absolutely amazing!!

When you go down to Elizabeth Quay, you cannot fail to miss this attraction. It is a very modern piece of architecture and very impressive too. We got there just at 12 noon so got the full "bell ringing experience"! This must be on your tourist schedule if you come to Perth

Once again a very interesting and interactive place to visit, a tour is a must to find out the story behind the bells and bell ringing. You even get to have a go at ringing the bells and a certificate as well to say you have had a go, but don't think it is easy, when you here how long... More

We did a last minute decision to visit the bell towers after leaving Perth Mint. It was a great decision. Spent about 45 mins at this place. We signed up for the bell tower guided experience and Kate the guide is really knowledgeable about the history of the bells that in the bell tower, design, mechanics and ways to use... More

Set in the centre of Perth cbd by Elizabeth quay the bell tower is a stunning piece of architecture by the river. You can access the tower which has detailed information about the bells. Won't take up lots of your time but interesting and well laid out.

It's not worth the money you pay. The only enjoyable thing is the view at the last floor. No guide, no very good explainations. Pretty disappointed. It's better to see the tower just from the outside.

Highly recommend this educational tour. Howard, our guide, was very friendly and informative about the bell tower and other Perth history. Had great time ringing the bell. See it soon before the 360 degree view is obscured by a large building being built next door.

A great place to visit. Very interesting, especially if the bell ringers are performing or practicing when you are in the museum.
