Great news for the city of Perth today – officially announced in Parliament that Perth been granted city status. Even though it has always been known as the Fair City of Perth according to Royal statute, Perth was not recognised as such for governmetal purposes.
This is great news for Perth for an economic, confidence and touristic point of view and should bring many more visitors to the city. This will be particularly the case whnen the Queen visits in July as part of her Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Why not come to stay at No 9 The Guest House Perth to celebrate the Queen’s visit or see exactly what Perth has to offer in terms of history (Scone Palace and crowning place of Scottish Kings), atmosphere (shops, restaurants and bars), culture (Perth Theatre, Perth Concert Hall, Perth Museum and Art Gallery, Perth Festival of the Arts), Race Meetings at Perth Races, outdoor activities (golf, fishing on the Tay, hillwalking and birdwatching). We would love to introduce you to our great City!!
