Even though the Cathedral is in ruins it is a great place to walk around and see everything. You can climb up one of the towers and have a view which is always a bonus.

We went on a Rabbies coach trip to St Andrews and had just under 3 hours there. I absolutely loved going round the ruins especially with the audio guide. Go up the tower - the views are 100% worth the 160 spiral step climb!

Was very impressed by the size and grandeur of these ruins. The museum is just a collection of stones, though the ticket includes the token with which one can go up into St. Rule's tower, the view from which is a must see. It is worthwhile reading the signs or having a guid book as it brings this formerly enormous structure even more alive.

Visited the Cathedral and was amazed how large it had been. Purchased a token to allow admittance to the tower. Lots of steps, but the view is awesome, great Pictures too. It was also helpful to see where we would be walking to explore the city. There is a small museum, but we did not walk through it and restrooms. We Left the cathedral and walked down the hill and out onto the Pier/sea wall. Then to the Castle.

Even though there is little left of it, St Andrews Cathedral is an incredibly impressive building: the outline of its foundations shows the scope and size of the cathedral building in its heyday, whilst surrounding graves inspire one to reflect upon transient nature of things. When it is sunny, you can witness the beautiful play of sunlight on sandstone: greyish and dark-beige hues all of a sudden light up and glow with colours of amber and honey. Simply stunning.

You have to walk all the way through the town to reach the site of this ruined cathedral. If you pay the entry fee you get to climb a tower in the middle of the site, but you can get as much enjoyment just from wandering around for free. Most of the different parts of the building are labelled and there are lots of information boards. What a tragedy that it was destroyed. From there you can walk in one direction around the harbour or in the other direction to the castle. It's a lovely part of the town on a calm sunny day. It might not be so nice in the rain with a cold easterly wind though. It's very exposed to the elements.

A very stark reminder of some of the less-than-savoury history of the British Isles. Beautifully set against the coast, and very easy to lose yourself in for a few hours.

Loved the experience, such a beautiful view once we reached the top. Hopefully everyone else will manoeuvre the turnstile better than we did!

Spent a few hours in St. Andrew and walked through the impressive ruins of the cathedral and cemetery.
