  • The carillon is a wonderful building overlooking Bournville Green and is part of the primary school. Once a week (Saturdays ) they have guides tours and once a year they have a taster tour as part of the Bournville Heritage Day. The tour includes a trip (up some pretty narrow and steep spiral stairs ) to the roof to see the bells and to see and hear the clavier (a kind of keyboard) play the collection of bells. Pretty impressive stuff (also wonderful to hear the carillon bells on Christmas Eve at the annual carol service )
  • Гуляя по бывшей родовой деревушке семьи Кэдбери, откуда в 1905 году появился знаменитый молочный шоколад, услышал прекрасный звон 48 колоколов с колокольни, опять же оплаченной сыном Джорджем с успешной продажи шоколадок.Она была установлена в 1906 году и на территории Англии всего 15 карильонов, очень классный звук колоколов, сочетающийся с органным.Рекомендую посетить, ведь за основу брался карильон из собора в Брюгге
