St Andrews Cathedral - Review

Dating back to at least 8th century, the St Andrews Cathedral is Scotland’s largest and most beautiful medieval church. The church museum has a collection of medieval sculptures, relics and Sarcophagus of the Patron Saint dating back to the age of Picts (a Tribal population that lived during the Late Iron Age and Early Medieval period).

The church marks the time when the Cathedral dominated the Scottish religion until the mid 16th century. Don’t forget to climb to the top of the 33-meter tall St. Rule’s Tower for the fabulous view.

St Andrews Cathedral , St Andrews Reviews

  • Very impressive site! Maybe because not much is left and you have to use you imagination. Entry to the park is free. You only pay for going up the remaining clock tower or into the museum. We skipped both and enjoyed the site very much. One of our highlights on our trip through Scotland. On the other end of the park you can access the wonderful beach.

  • Wow! Beautiful ruins surrounded by a cemetery where Scottish national hero William Wallace is buried. Wonderful views to the sea and a nice place to walk around. Not necessary to pay to see the museum to enjoy the site.

  • Interesting ruins. Small exhibition. Staff friendly and helpful. Climb up St. Rules tower (included in price) well worth it for views.

  • Beautiful ruins to spend 15 minutes in, taking pictures. Great view to the sea. A bit pricey for what is proposed. Don't miss a short underground passage underneath, cold and intriguing

  • You can only imagine how wonderful it was when St Andrews Cathedral was at it's height. The ruins that are left are quite impressive. Entry to the grounds is free. The beach and a bicycle and walk path are just across the grounds. Just near the cathedral grounds are St Andrews Castle and St Andrews university close to the center of town. There is a fee for the museum and the clock tower.
