Whitechapel Bell Foundry


Take a 90-minute walking tour through Britain's oldest manufacturing company. Whitechapel Bell Foundry, situated in a Grade II listed building, was established in 1570 and has been making bells since the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.

Learn about the traditional processes used in producing some of the world's most famous bells. The original Liberty Bell was made here, as was the largest bell ever cast at Whitechapel, Big Ben (a cross-section of which can be seen around the entrance). Book your historic tour in advance. All tours take place on certain Saturdays throughout the year.
