Parking in Perth

There’s a wide range of safe and secure, short stay car parks within the city centre. If you wish to stay all day, follow the signs for South Inch, Kinnoull Street, Thimble Row or Canal Street car parks. These car parks are a short walk from the High Street

Kinnoull Street multi-storey car park is open until midnight, Monday – Sunday. Canal Street multi-storey car park is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Many of Perth’s car parks have been awarded “Park Mark” safety status. The scheme is designed to reduce crime and the fear of crime in car parks. Look out for the “Park Mark” signs at car parks.

Free 15 minute parking

Perth is the first city to recognise the ‘click and collect’ culture and has introduced a 15 minute free parking policy. This only applies to Council-run car parks and on-street parking spaces. A valid ticket must be displayed and can be acquired free of charge by pressing the button on the parking machine.


PLEASE NOTE: Site investigation works at Thimblerow car park

Initial site investigations works will be beginning soon for the Mill Quarter development in Perth. To allow these to take place, the Thimblerow car park will be partially closed from Thursday 8 February. The works are being undertaken to check the ground conditions, by digging pits and boreholes. The contractors will keep as many car parking spaces as possible open, while maintaining a safe working site.

The works are expected to last for 6 weeks.

We apologise for any inconvenience and we would like to assure you that health and safety is our highest priority during this project.
