St Andrews Ghost Tours

Explore the city with ghost hunting and learn the history of St Andrews Castle, St Andrews Cathedral and the University of St Andrews.

St. Andrews Ghost tour is not for the faint-hearted people, as this place has been a ruin for five centuries. 

Regardless of how you approach the town, the appearance of a skeleton greets you. 

The broken cathedral’s vast gaunt gables are the bones of a dead world. 

Only a small boat can enter the silted-up mediaeval harbour, and the high old houses that face the curving stone pier are empty. 

Despite the fact that the old authority, both spiritual and temporal, that ruled this city has been deposed, and the old ways of life have vanished, life has never stopped.

Three streets converge on the cathedral’s stone corse and the innumerable human bones that crowd the graveyard around it.

Is the St Andrews Ghost Tour worth it?

The St Andrews Ghost tour is not a ‘fun and giggles’ tour, so if you’re looking for theatrics or costumed actors, you won’t find them here. 

There are no fictional stories, conceits, or adornments. 

There is no blood, guts, or gore, and there are no murders; the only ‘jumper ooters’ are the true ghosts!

For a good reason, this is one of the best ghost tours in the world.

St Andrews is more than just the home of golf, It is also the residence of Ghosts!

Therefore, this tour is totally worth having a great haunting experience.
