To help stop the spread of Corona Virus, we've made some temporary changes - As of 6 June 2020, the Bell Tower will now open Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday from 10am - 4pm with last entry at 3.45pm. (Closed Mon, Tue, Wed). ❤️
Bell Ringing will now be on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday 12pm - 1pm.
The Bell Tower is the only place in the world where bellringers can share their cultural heritage with visitors in such an open and accessible way. If you are a visiting ringer, or interested in learning to ring and become a part of the worldwide fraternity of bellringers, please visit the St Martin's Society of Change Ringers website.
The Bell Tower ringing times:
|Monday||12pm – 1pm|
|Thursday||12pm – 1pm|
|Sunday||12pm – 1pm|
One of the most unique activities to do in Perth is to hear the Ringers practicing their ancient art of ‘Change Ringing’. The bells are also rung on many other occasions, with 10-bell practices and Surprise Major Practices being held monthly.
