Take a Tour of St Andrews
Hi folks, good to speak to you again.
I’m always asked what to do in St Andrew and we’re very luck here – There are so many things to see around St Andrews. You can visit historical landmarks such as St Andrews Cathedral, meander down the many ancient closes (side streets for our friends across the pond!),take the kids to St Andrews Aquarium or go for a brisk stroll along the Harbour – to name but a few!
If you are planning a trip to St Andrews this summer then thanks for stopping in on my blog – you’ve come to the right place! I really do advise planning your trip in advance to make sure you don’t miss out on the many wonderful spots around town.
One of the best ways to get around town is to take a tour. If you’re staying at the resort then my colleagues and I would be delighted to arrange a bespoke tour for you. We’re a friendly bunch and would be absolutely delighted to take you around town to share our wealth of local knowledge. Alternatively the open top bus tour is fantastic. The hour long journey takes you around the main attractions including the Botanic Garden, the British Golf Museum and St Salvator’s Chapel. You can pick up the bus just outside the hotel or from its starting point at St Andrews bus station, just a short walk from the hotel.
A cracking tour for kids is the Medieval Murder Mystery Tour available to purchase in Waterstone’s Book Shop and the Visitor Information Centre both on Market Street. It is a self guided tour that leads you around town providing some fascinating historical facts, fun puzzles and riddles along the way. This tour is fantastic even for local folks; it’s great fun and you may even learn something new about the Auld Grey Toon!
Now I’m not all that high-tech…I’ve only just the hang of blogging…however one of the younger team members did show me a fantastic Visit St Andrews walking tour Iphone app. You can download the app to your Iphone by searching for St Andrews, Scotland in the Iphone App Store. The app, which costs just £1.99, offers you four different tours and the option to create your own tour by selecting your desired locations. The latest tour to be added to the app is the ‘In the Footsteps of Royalty’ – For those of you who can’t get enough of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the tour takes you around the town stopping at ten of the couples favourite student haunts.
There are many more tours on offer, both myself and my team would be delighted to help you choose the right one for your trip. If you would like any more information on your next trip to St Andrews then please do send me a message.
