Carillon is a musical instrument based on 47 bells and follows the tradition of Belgian bell music. In a Carillon the bells are rung by forcing a clapper down onto the bell from levers at a keyboard. The Carillonneur therefore plays the music which can be enjoyed across the surrounding Queens Park and well beyond.

Recitals every Thursday (1pm) and Sunday (3.30pm) throughout summer - full details can be found on the Carillon website. During recitals visitors are able to watch the Carillonneur playing in the Clavier room.
