Hogmanay & Taxi


We are visiting Perth over the Hogmanay period and going to the Concert Hall on the 31st. After it has finished and the fireworks are done etc. Will it be hard to get a taxi? Never been to Perth before. We are staying it the Travelodge, is that within walking distance to the centre and the concert hall?

1. Re: Hogmanay & Taxi

The travel lodge is a very long walk from the concert hall as it's right on the very edge of Perth, although I've just looked on google maps and it's 2.5 miles which is fine during the day but on a cold night I wouldn't fancy it much. If you know exactly when you will want picked up I would call some taxi companies and see if you can pre-book a taxi - otherwise it will probably be a very long wait in a taxi queue - and it's bad enough on a Saturday night!
