St Andrews attracts a wealth of visitors from all over the world – and their reasons for coming to the town are very varied: working or studying at the University, playing any on of the area’s stunning golf courses, visiting friends and family in the Kingdom of Fife, on a business conference … the list goes on! But there are some questions many visitors ask – so we hope this helps!


Q. Where are the public toilets in town?

A. Check out this link that lists the toilet facilities and their location. There is also a multitude of cafes, pubs, restaurants and hotels who make their toilet facilities available to visitors.


Q. The sun is out! What is there to discover?

A. We couldn’t not start with golf! Check out the St Andrews Links for information on the courses and facilities. And on a Sunday, join the tradition of walking on the Old Course to walk in the footprints of legends of the game. We are blessed with iconic and historic properties including St Andrews Castle and the ruins of St Andrews Cathedral and St Rule’s Tower. The town has a stunning botanical garden as well as award-winning beaches … the most famous of which, West Sands, featured in the opening titles of the Oscar-winning Chariots of Fire. There are plenty of walks – and the town is on the Fife Coastal Path.


Q. Eeek! Its raining – what to do?

If you have the family with you – head to the East Sands Leisure Centre: it has some great facilities to enjoy. Looking for a cultural and heritage experience? We have plenty: check out these links to the St Andrews Museum, the Museums & Collections at the University of St Andrews, the British Golf Museum as well as the Fraser Gallery and the Artery Gallery. The town has more than 100 places to eat and drink – so we are sure there’s something that will suit every appetite. Check out our A-Z business listings for more.
