St Andrews


SCROLL DOWN

St Andrews


Mary Queen of Scots, Hilary Clinton and Alice in Wonderland - just a few of the people who have visited St Andrews to extraordinary consequences.

Follow in their footsteps as I take you round some of the town's best known sites and tell you some of the lesser known stories.

You'll find out why Prince William was almost turned down for his first flat, where the last relics of St Andrew can be found and why the people of St Andrews spent £5,000 on a statue of a cat. Along the way, you'll get a sense of what makes this sleepy seaside town tick and why there is something rotten at its core.

Welcome to St Andrews.

If doing the tour on Sundays you will not be able to get into St Mary's College - but it is the only day of the week you will be able to walk on the Old Course.
