Eight centuries of history are manifest, and modern facilities have been added seamlessly. Stained glass windows tell the story. The organ sounds wonderful.

staff was very congenial and informative. It was billed as a very old church but did not seem so. the central location is a plus as almost anyone coming downtown will be near it

Beautiful church in centre of Perth. Although quite large, it has a welcoming ambience and is well worth spending time there

Kirk of St. John the Baptist is a beautiful church located right at the center of the city, so it's very easy to find. The present building was built in the 15th century, so it has a lot of history.

Me and my husband went to see this church after considering the reviews. As we arrived there a mass in Polish was about to start. None of us two understands Polish, but we loved the atmosphere, how we felt during that mass. It does not happen often, especially if the priest is talking in another language you do not understand.... More

History, architecture, with contemporary church services. A combination of celebrating the history with remaining relevant today.

We felt very welcome on our visit, greeted by a lovely volunteer who explained a little about the history of the church then gave us an information sheet with more information. The church has a lovely peaceful feeling and some beautiful windows including the one dedicated to the Black Watch Regiment. They also have a beautiful iron and carved candle... More

This is a beautiful kirk, with very detailed leaded glass windows and ancient wood carvings. Don't expect it to be cold and draughty, because it has the very best that modern life can offer us. The history to the kirk is fascinating. Well worth a visit.
