Local Attractions

St. Andrews is one of Scotland’s most beautiful towns, successfully blending traditional character with a vibrant mix of outstanding recreational facilities. The town has a burgeoning cultural scene as well as many exciting visitor attractions, excellent shopping, and a collection of restaurants and bars serving delicious Scottish cuisine.

The town is located on the East Coast of Scotland, in the Kingdom of Fife, and contains a fascinating history. Take in the heritage of the town with an exclusive guided tour, as you explore the cobbled streets and the nooks and crannies of the University of St. Andrews, the most ancient in Scotland and today a thriving center of excellence made popular by Prince William, who chose to study there. Afterwards, visit St. Andrews Castle and the Cathedral ruins. There are also many picturesque fishing villages to explore nearby.

There are many family-friendly attractions to explore, including the Sea Life Centre, St. Andrews Aquarium, the Botanic Gardens, and Craigtoun Country Park, while the surrounding area offers many delights including spotting seals from the sand dunes at Tentsmuir and horse riding at Kilconquhar Castle.

Relax at one of the town’s many coffee houses before hiting the shops. St. Andrews is refreshingly free of chain stores, ensuring a unique and rewarding shopping experience, with the town center offering an excellent range of independent, family-run shops and businesses.

One can’t talk about St. Andrews without mentioning golf, since the game has been played here for the past six centuries. St. Andrews is home to 11 courses – seven of championship class – including the world’s most famous golf course, the Old Course, as well as the Royal and Ancient, which sets the rules of golf worldwide. The town regularly plays host to major golfing tournaments such as The Open, which is staged every five years in St. Andrews, and the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, which attracts many international celebrities and major golfing names. If you’d prefer a more relaxed round, enjoy a spot of putting in the Himalayas, the famous 18-hole putting green, which ensures an afternoon of fun for adults and children alike.

The Fife coastal path takes in 135 kilometers of stunning coastline; however, visitors can simply enjoy a gentle stroll along the award-winning West Sands Beach, which is a vast expanse of glittering, white sand.
