28 fun things to do in St Andrews

St Andrews is a beautiful seaside town area with a rich history and culture. The home of golf, with seven world-class golf courses, including the iconic Old Course.  the Old Course has hosted the Open Championship an incredible 29 times since 1873. St Andrews is also home to the oldest university in Scotland, founded in 1412.

Situated on the Fife coast, St Andrew’s long sandy beach was the film location for the opening sequence of ‘Chariots of Fire’. Today land yachting is a very popular activity.

Visit local cafes like the world-renowned ice cream shop Jannettas and the rock and roll diner Ziggy’s. Also well worth exploring Scotland’s secret bunker.  for 50 years it was a Nuclear command centre hidden below a farm house.

This small town on the East Neuk of Fife has a lot to offer.
