Discover St Andrews: Unveiling the Hidden Gem by Train and Taxi

Ever wondered about visiting the charming Scottish town of St Andrews? This historic haven for golf lovers and home to Scotland’s oldest university is a must-visit. However, there’s one curious fact about this coastal gem: it doesn’t have a train station. But fear not, because a convenient, comfortable, and cost-effective solution awaits you in the form of St Andrews Taxis.

St Andrews once had its own train station, part of the St Andrews Railway, which opened back in 1867. But due to the rise of the motor car and a decline in passenger numbers, British Rail closed the station on January 6, 1969. Today, the absence of a train station only adds to St Andrews’ quaint, undisturbed ambiance.
