  • Unless you're able-bodied, it may be difficult to enjoy all but a tiny fraction of what Kingsbrae has to offer. From a complete lack of handicap parking, gravel paths to a steep grade (from the entrance down to where the animals are kept) I would classify Kingsbrae as "barely wheelchair friendly." If you're in a wheelchair, I hope you have a strong companion to help you get around.
  • This is just a little piece of heaven. The gardens are spectacular - the food is delicious and the staff is incredibly lovely.
  • Beautiful and lots of fun for kids. Lovthe edible garden.
  • Probably the best thing in St Andrews. Beautiful gardens and their cafe is likely the best restaurant in town. Definitely worth a visit.
