  • Lovely place with loads of fishes and cool tanks. Great place to spend your weekend in. Amazing animals of all varieties. A great place for the family or just a place to relax on your own.
  • We had a brilliant afternoon at the aquarium, we spent a good few hours there because there was so much to do. We enjoyed the wide variety of sea life in the main building and then went on to see the seals get fed and a reptile handling session. Our 3 year old was taken by the Meerkats and the 'walk in' aquarium which gave him the impression that he was under the sea. We finished off with a coffee in the cafe. Highly recommended.
  • We spent a rainy afternoon here and the kids had a great time. In The Tank was the favourite!
  • As aquarium right in the beach/in the ocean. Not a huge place, but definitely a fun place to go.
  • Larger obvious species labeling. Interesting place. Enjoyed the meerkat presentation

Where to stay in St. Andrews

less expensive lodging and luxury rental apartments are located around the town center and the university buildings. Be sure to book accommodations overlooking the sea and St. Andrew Cathedral ruins early, because they fill up fast during the good weather months. Rental properties in the town center on narrow streets, such as Market Street, are within walking distance of the main architectural and cultural attractions. Save money by renting a room farther west of the town center. These are residential neighborhoods that are well-connected to the town center but offer quiet nights and inexpensive nightly rates.
