Award-winning sightseeing walking tours of St Andrews with noted guide, author and historical researcher Richard Falconer. St Andrews is one of the most unique and surprising locations in the world. It is no secret that St Andrews is a sought-after destination, being the Home of Golf and incorporating Scotland's first University, but there has been a vibrancy here for well over 1000 years. It culminated in the rise and fall of the Cathedral precincts, symbolic of the greatest seat of Catholic power outside Rome itself in Europe for over 400 years - and the treasures they housed may still be here! You will hear about the formation of St Andrews, the golf, the university and Royalty through the ages from Pictish Kings to Mary Queen of Scots and Prince William. It is fair to say St Andrews has it all, and you will find out all about it on this informative and thought-provoking tour as you wander through its iconic historic precincts.
