Perth is easily accessible via all forms of transport. It sits astride the M90, A9, and A85 and due to our central location 90% of Scotland's population can reach our city in 90 minutes or less.
There are regular trains from Scotland's major cities. Perth railway station is located approximately 0.7 miles (1.1km) from the centre of Perth. A map showing the best route to walk can be found here. There is also a taxi rank located outside the station.
Perth bus station is located approximately 0.4 miles (0.7km) from the centre of Perth. A map showing the best route to walk can be found here.
There are many local bus services which link the centre of Perth and the surrounding area. The Perth and Kinross Council website provides details about timetables and routes.
There are three Park + Ride sites operating in Perthshire:
There is bicycle parking available at the Concert Hall, near the back of the building on the Museum side.
There is both on-street and off-street parking on Mill Street where charges apply from 8am - 6pm Monday to Saturday. There are three disabled public car parking spaces directly opposite the main entrance to the concert hall but these tend to fill very quickly.
There is also a car park on Kinnoull Street which is operated by Smart Parking Car Parks (01738 440 933).
This 550-space multi-storey car park is open from 7am – midnight Monday to Saturday and 10am – midnight on Sundays. It is a pay-and-display car park meaning that the charge must be paid on arrival.
A height restriction for this car park is also in place: approximately two metres (six-and-a-half feet). Vehicles higher than this should park in South Inch car park where there's no height restriction.

Perth Concert Hall and Perth Theatre have been designed to be disability friendly. We have lifts to all levels, Induction Loops, FM Headsets, Infra-Red Enhanced Hearing System and staff who are happy to help.
A trained team describes the action on stage to visually impaired patrons in the audience through either FM or Infra-Red Headsets. Description will begin ten minutes prior to curtain up with scene setting and programme notes. Audio Description is available for certain performances only, please contact Box Office for dates and times.
These are an innovative way for the visually impaired patron to have the full theatre experience. Those attending the Audio Described performance have the opportunity to feel sets and costumes and have all the aspects of the production and staging described to them. Available on same dates as Audio Described performances, contact Jen Hoy to book your place.
A talking version of our brochure is available. Please contact Jen Hoy or Box Office for a copy.
For some of our performances we offer British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreted performances. Please contact Box Office who can advise dates and times for these performances and best seats to view the interpreter.
What is a relaxed performance?
Relaxed performances are less formal and have a more supportive atmosphere allowing everyone to experience the joy of live performance. Everyone is welcome to attend, however customers with an autistic spectrum condition, sensory sensitivity, communication or learning disability may find these performances particularly beneficial. The relaxed performance is still the same show, but with some small changes including:
Visual Stories are designed to help customers with a variety of special needs and those on the autistic spectrum to prepare for their visit to Perth Theatre.
Our Visual Story contains lots of images along with helpful information to help you to understand what to expect from your visit and to prepare for the sights and sounds of the experience.

At Perth Theatre we have FM Headsets which can be collected from either the Box Office on arrival or from a member of the FOH team. These headsets are used instead of a hearing aid to receive enhanced sound from stage.
