I first came across London Court in Perth totally by accident. I had never heard of it and on a stroll around the city I suddenly found myself in part of Tudor England. Very surreal and it was way before drinks o’clock!
Built in 1937, London Court is part residential, part retail and the design reflects Elizabethan England. The walkway goes from Hay Street to St Georges Terrace in the heart of the CBD. There are clocks at each end of the walkway, and they chime every 15 minutes. The decorative Hay Street entrance has a clock that is a replica of ‘The Great Clock’ in Rouen, France. When the clock chimes, four miniature knights start jousting. At the St George Terrace entrance is a replica of Big Ben and when the clock chimes, a miniature St George takes on the dragon. It is all a bit kitsch and all quite cute and entertaining. You actually get a feel for the narrow laneways and charms of a Tudor village while indulging in a little retail therapy if your whim so dictates. Here is a link to the shops in London Court.
And, also in Perth’s heart, is Rydges Perth for all your accommodation needs.
