Useful info for visitors to St Andrews:

While the centre of town is compact, and very walkable, it’s well worth checking the distance from your accommodation to the venue in advance, and booking transport if you’ll need it. Some accommodation in St Andrews can be a decent walk away (for example, the university accommodation at David Russell Apartments is about a 35 minute walk away from the conference venue – good footwear and a waterproof jacket advised!)

You can find a comprehensive list of local taxi companies on the Visit St Andrews website, as well as information on Getting Around St Andrews, with information on travelling around the area on foot, by bicycle, on the bus, and car hire. We look forward to seeing you in St Andrews!
