Perth Things to Do: 42 reviews and 54 photos

There is the "Calyx", Cherrybank Gardens and Branklyn gardens (NTS) but also many more beautiful gardens managed by the council - and in July / August the town is festooned with displays and hanging flower baskets.

Perth centre is between two parks, the North and South Inches, with sports fields, mature trees of all species, and public horticulture. It is very peaceful and best enjoyed by walking - one day can be enjoyed delighting in this, combined with heritage, architecture and ending in a nice cafe, bar or picnic beside the River Tay.

Allow a day - it need not cost anything and is most relaxing - quite unlike most rushed, frenetic tourism. Time to get back to being on holiday! (Of course, I live here, perpetually on holiday).
