What's St Andrews more famous for nowadays – its status as the "home of golf", or the royal romance harbored within the walls of its ancient university, where Prince William first met his bride Kate Middleton? Either way, it's the most postcard-perfect coastal town you could hope to see, with rolling green golf courses, cliff-perched medieval buildings and a pristine beach where scenes from the classic film 'Chariots of Fire' were shot.
Book into the world's oldest golf course for a memorable round, then take a tour of the university, with its airy quads, attractive nineteenth century buildings and royal heritage. The atmospheric ruins of nearby St Andrew's Cathedral make for a perfect afternoon’s exploring. And once you’ve had a look around, it’s time to walk the West Sands with an ice-cream in hand – whatever the weather!
