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.
