On Foot/Bike

The Garden is located on Canongate and is a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of St Andrews. The easiest route is to follow the signs from the town down Viaduct Walk, which is a shared path for bikes and walkers. We have bike racks at the Garden. 

We are also accessible from the Lade Braes, and just off the Fife Pilgrim Way, between Ceres and St Andrews. You can get to the Garden from the Lade Braes via Maynard Road (to the side of Canongate Primary School). 

By Public Transport

The 93 bus route goes past the Garden, to/from St Andrews Bus Station. It takes 5 minutes by bus from the bus station in St Andrews to the Garden, or 13 minutes to walk. The 93 bus is operated by Stagecoach, so for information on times and ticket prices please see their website.

The nearest train station for the Garden is Leuchars – buses connecting Leuchars and St Andrews are available every 10 minutes or less.

By Car

We have a free car park at the Garden - however please note that this may be busy during special events. Our address is St Andrews Botanic Garden, Canongate, St Andrews, Fife KY16 8RT.
