City of Perth

Nearby Perth was awarded City status in March 2012, an event crowned by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's visit to receive the city keys in July of that year. So much of Scotland's history and heritage are to be found around the area, which is just a relaxed twenty-minute drive from us at The Red House Hotel.

Here are some highlights we suggest checking out when you visit us.

Scone Palace is the original home of the 'Stone of Destiny' (also known in England as the 'Coronation Stone'). This is where the past Kings of Scotland were crowned and is steeped in our country's history and tradition. Scone was the capital of the Pictish Kingdom, the centre of the ancient Celtic church and its Palace is a major tourist attraction, under the ownership of the Earl of Mansfield.
Another must-see is Perth Concert Hall, which is accessed from Coupar Angus and features a range of musical entertainment, from cutting edge pop, to the finest classical performances. Opened in 2005, the auditorium is the perfect setting to inspire and encourage the many youngsters who wish to take up an instrument and pursue a career in the arts.

Perth is also home to of the UK's most picturesque racecourses just a ten-minute journey from the city centre, where the top trainers and jockeys compete. Paul Nicholls, Philip Hobbs, David Pipe and Nicky Henderson regularly bring their stars north, to be ridden by the likes of Tony McCoy, Richard Johnson and Ruby Walsh. You can expect the best events to be over around 16 race days each year, with the three days April Festival and June's Perth Gold Cup day.

If football is more in line with your interests, you can watch Scottish Premier League action at McDiarmid Park, where St. Johnstone play, regularly in the of half of the division.

No matter your tastes, or what you enjoy, Perth will have something to make a memorable trip.
