"Swan Bells" Perth Favorite Tip by Wang_hong

Perth General: 161 reviews and 139 photos


Favorite thing: The Swan Bells include the 12 bells of St Martin-in-the-Fields which are recorded as being in existence from before the 14th century and recast in the 16th century by Queen Elizabeth1. The bells were again recast between 1725 and 1770 by three generations of the Rudhall family of bell founders from Gloucester in England, under the order of the Prince of Wales who was later crowned as King George 2. They are one of the few sets of royal bells and are the only ones known to have left England.

Fondest memory: It was a pity that I could not ring the bell although I paid entry fees:(
