London Court

London Court is located in Perth's Hay Street Mall and was modelled on the Liberty's store, in London. Built in mock Tudor style the narrow arcade was completed in 1937 for a wealthy gold miner and financier Claude de Bernales during the depression .

The arcade leads through to St George's Terrace. The blue-faced clock located at the Hay Street Mall entrance chimes every quarter hour. The clock face is a replica of a dial in the tower that houses Big Ben in London.

Above the clock face are four knights known as the 'Tournament of Armoured Knights'. The knights circle in the window when the clock chimes. Above the clock located at the St George's entrance is St George slaying the dragon. The clock is a replicas of the La Grosse Harloge ( 'Great Clock') that resides in Rouen in France. Inside the two dungeon towers stands the statues of Sir Walter Raleigh and Dick Whittington.
