Every golfer dreams of playing at St Andrews, with its seven courses including its most famous Old Course. The town's Golf Museum, opposite the Royal and Ancient Golf Club allows visitors an insight into the lives of champions and test their skills and knowledge of the game of golf.
St Andrews is renowned for more than golf, and evidence of its long, and at times turbulent history can be seen everywhere. It is the ancient seat of learning and home to Scotland's first university, and the red robed students add a colourful atmosphere to this pretty town. The town's ruined cathedral was once the centre of the nation's religious life, and you can climb the adjacent St Regulus Tower for a magnificent view of the town and its surroundings. There is also a mile of golden beach for fine walks and plenty of hip bistros and cafes for refreshment in town. The Botanic Garden has 18 acres of impressively landscaped gardens and glasshouses with a wide range of plants. Visitors can also walk around St Andrews Museum, housed in Kinburn House, a Victorian mansion set in pleasant parkland. Open top bus tours are a convenient way to see the aquarium, golf museum, university buildings and cathedral, with departures every hour.
For the more energetic, the Fife Coastal Path is a signposted walking route which follows the coast to the north and south, and there are signposted cycle routes too.
