It's great to welcome you back to our venues!
Things are a little bit different from before, so please read our Visiting Our Venues so that you know what to expect when you come.
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 Concert Hall and Perth Theatre are both well served by good bus connections. The venues are approximately 800m from Perth Bus Station on Leonard Street, and there are several bus stops nearby.
There are a number of Stagecoach East services which link the centre of Perth and the surrounding area.
By getting the bus to our venues you positively contribute towards our efforts as a Green organisation.
There is bicycle parking available at both Perth Concert Hall and Perth Theatre.
At the Concert Hall this can be found near the back of the building on the Museum side.
At Perth Theatre this can be found outside the Mill Street entrance.
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.
