Perth Bell Tower Tours

3 Reviews
Perth Bell Tower
Home to the historic Swan Bells, Perth's Bell Tower dominates the city skyline and makes for a fun Perth activity. Housed in a 271-foot (83-meter) tower, 12 of the existing 18 bells originally hung in London's St Martin-in-the-Fields church, where they announced events for centuries. 

Now that the bells have found their way to Perth, visitors can learn the art of bell-ringing on guided tours, or simply stop in to hear the bellringers practice their art of chiming on Monday, Thursday or Sunday from noon to 1pm. For the opportunity to chime a bell yourself, book an interactive bell-chiming demonstration and receive an official certificate as proof of your new skill.

Travelers can also head up the towering glass-and-copper spire to its three observation decks and look out over much of downtown Perth and the Swan River (the sixth-floor deck offers 360-degree views). The famous tower can also be admired from afar, perhaps as part of a photography tour that wanders the streets of Perth.

Practical Info

General admission simply grants access to the tower's interior and costs $9 for adults and $7 for children between the ages of 5 and 14. There are additional fees for the chiming demonstration, also known as the Bell Tower Experience, which is offered Monday through Saturday at every half hour between 10:30am and 2:30pm. The site opens daily from 10am, and the bells are rung every Monday, Thursday and Sunday from noon to 1pm.
 
Did You Know? With a history dating back to the 14th century, the Swan Bells are the only royal bells to have ever left England.
