Places of Interest
In St Andrews town centre, there are a great many attractions all within walking distance of one another, so you can leave your car in the long-stay car park all day without needing to go back to it.
A walking circuit of the town can take in all the main visitor attractions, and you can get leaflets and maps from the Tourist Information Centre in Market Street that will help you to know what to look for along the way.
There are guided walking tours available - besides pointing out things that you might otherwise miss, these can really help you to understand some of the history of the town. There's even a night-time, ghost-led Witches Tour!
You should also look out for re-enactments of historical scenes at the Castle, the Cathedral and in Church Square during July and August.
Attractions outwith the town centre include St Andrews Botanic Garden, the Eden Estuary Nature Reserve, and Craigtoun Country Park. Farther afield are the fishing villages of the East Neuk, Falkland Palace, Kellie Castle, Hill of Tarvit, the Fife Folk Museum, the Scottish Fisheries Museum, and lots more.
