St Andrews, Queensferry & Kelpies Day Trip
// St Andrews is a picturesque medieval city, known as the 'Home of Golf' and location of St Andrews University, where Prince William and Kate graduated!
ABOUT THE TRIP
Join us to start the year with a great Day Trip to visit the medieval city of St
Andrews, one of Scotland's most picturesque towns on the east coast. Worldwide, it is known as the 'Home of Golf', the sport having been played there for 600 years and its Old Course, arguably the most famous golf course in the world. The beautiful town also boasts the oldest University and the largest cathedral in Scotland. University of St Andrews is also the third oldest in the English-speaking world! Prince William and his wife Kate both studied at St Andrews University! You will be enchanted by the university's elegance, its buildings, delightful quadrangles and gardens. As you walk through the town's Medieval centre, you will find yourself back in time with its cobble stone streets and narrow alleyways. You will have plenty of time as there is so much to see in this charming town visiting: St Andrews Castle, Cathedral, British Golf Museum, the beautiful sandy beach in St Andrews, where the famous opening sequence of Chariots of Fire was shot, Art Museums, Botanic Gardens and North Point Cafe (where Kate and William used to meet), and even more!
This day trip also includes visiting Queensferry to see Scotland's most iconic bridge, the Forth Rail Bridge filmed in "The 39 Steps". We will also make a short stop at 'The Kelpies', the impressive magnificent largest horse head sculptures in the world by Andy Scott. So, CAN'T BE MISSED!
