Another great piece of St Andrews, wonderful church that is still in use today. Church is located basically in the middle of town.

It's a nice old church. It's not huge. It's still used. The alter area is really nice and my daughters really liked the stained glass. Overall it's pretty nice.

A lovely quiet place to enjoy in a busy shopping area. Historical and interesting if you like to visit churches connected with where you are visiting.

The church is right in the town centre. The great architecture stands out but for me the large stain glass windows at one end were excellent. As with most things in the town surrounded by history and has a great feel

I stopped by here twice during my 4-day stay in St. Andrews and both times there was a man hard at work cleaning/buffing the floors with obvious care. The care shows; the sanctuary is beautiful. Stop in for some quick reflections while touring the town...More
