Harkness Tower Carillon Tour

Location: 
Harkness Tower (Meet at the Branford gate near High Street across from Jonathan Edwards on Memorial Walkway) See map
High Street between Chapel and Elm Streets
New Haven, CT

Soaring 216 feet tall, Harkness Tower is a Yale icon and home to the Yale Memorial Carillon.  Follow the spiral staircases up to the playing cabin of the tower to view the 54-bell carillon.  Members of the Guild of Carillonneurs will guide you through the tower and demonstrate a song.  We will host tours of Harkness Tower and the carillon. The tour visits our office level, both practice carillons, the playing cabin and surrounding balconies, but not the top of the tower. The guild member hosting will play one or two songs for the group on the real bells. 

Tours will be offered every half hour.  (Note: Tours are limited to 15 people).
