A Lesson in Perth’s History for School Excursions

Home of the Swan Bells

The Bell Tower is an ideal place for school excursions in Perth. More than 85 school groups per year enjoy a unique glimpse into the history of this State and its connection with the historic bells from London’s most famous Royal Church, St Martin in the Fields in Trafalgar Square… and been engaged in interactive demonstrations available nowhere else in the world!

The Bell Tower is a safe and controlled environment for educational excursions for schools in Perth and our experienced staff are skilled at dealing with large groups of students. We have experienced guides with Working with Children Checks, who provide a unique opportunity for students to participate in the chiming of the historic bells.

When your group visits, we can arrange for a fascinating live demonstration and explanation of bell handling by one of our guides (advance notice required). As you wander around the Tower you will discover an ever growing collection of antique bells, clocks and bell-related material from all over the world.
