Owner description: The remains of St Andrews Cathedral, which was Scotland’s largest cathedral and most magnificent church, show how impressive it used to be. The museum houses an outstanding collection of early and later medieval sculptures and other relics found on the site, including the magnificent St Andrews Sarcophagus of Pictish date. The precinct walls are particularly well preserved. St Rule's Tower, in the precinct, is part of the first church of the Augustinian canons at St Andrews built in the early 12th century. There are splendid views from the top. Joint ticket available with St Andrews Castle - Adult £9 Child £5.40 Concession £7

The first thing I would recommend any visitor to do in St Andrews is visit the cathedral and climb the square tower . It offers an excellent view of the town , the beaches and beyond. The cathedral itself gives you the idea of what an amazing once stood in this place. The visitors centre is also very informative.

Worth a stop to walk around. The pictures are incredible. Just down the road from the 18th hole on the Old Course.

A ruin over a large area, the cathedral is difficult to picture as a complete building from what is now left. Much has been taken over by cemeteries since the cathedral was left to go to rack and ruin, but there are plenty of interesting bits around. The tower is meant to lead to a fantastic view up 167 steps (and is one of the few bits that need paying for). However, if you are overweight, you may struggle to get through the turnstile at the entrance (voice of experience). The other areas needing a ticket are an exhibition of various stones and Celtic crosses, and an under croft full of medieval seals and grave stones - well worth a visit.
