It's great to welcome you back to our venues!

While we’ve been closed, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to get everything ready so that you can enjoy your visit in safety.

Things are a little bit different from before, so please read our Staying safe in our venues page so that you know what to expect when you come.

Getting here

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.

For information about train times and service updates please visit Trainline, the ScotRail website or call 0344 811 0344 

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.  

More details can be found on the Stagecoach East website. For full timetable and route listings, visit the Perth and Kinross Council website.   

There are a number of Park + Ride sites located around Perthshire: Perth, Scone and Kinross.  

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.

At Perth Concert Hall we have an Induction Loop in the Gannochy Auditorium which is in use for most performances; just turn your hearing aid to ‘t’ position. 

At Perth Theatre we have FM Headsets which can be collected from Ticketing Services. These headsets are used instead of a hearing aid to receive enhanced sound from stage.

All guide, hearing and assistance dogs are welcome in both our buildings.

We have booster seats for the little ones (available for Stalls only seating in both venues); Both Glassrooms Café and Perth Theatre Café provide high chairs, bottle warming and we’re breast feeding friendly. There are baby changing facilities for men and women to use.

Who are they for?

The backpacks are designed for anyone living with autism, down syndrome, sensory processing disorder, anxiety & dementia. However, anyone who feels they would benefit from extra support in our buildings can borrow them.

How do people borrow them?

They ask for a sensory backpack at box office- these can be borrowed anytime; it doesn’t need to be for a performance.

Are they free?

Yes! The backpacks are completely free to borrow.

What is in the bags?

60 drawstring bags each containing:

  • fidget toy
  • stress reliever ball
  • reusable water bottle
  • ear plugs
  • venue pack
  • lanyard help card and strap 
  • cuddly toy

Additional Items

We do provide limited items that are more expensive to buy and therefore must be signed out and returned (weighted lap pads, ear defenders, sand timers and liquid timers).

Are they cleaned?

Yes! Every time a bag is used it will be cleaned before it goes back out.
