Where will we sleep?

The local team is fully dedicated to having you live the most local experience ever, hence you will be sleeping in… the student rooms!!

Standard rooms

How do we get to St Andrews from other places in Europe?

A little Googlemap search should give you an idea of where St Andrews is in the Kingdom of Fife, just North of Edinburgh.

 

Here’s a beautiful table with most flights from French/Spanish/Belgian/Swiss cities. We hope you realise we’re each time making it easier for you to come. Maybe one day we’ll solve the puzzles in the roadbook for you so you can get to the challenges in no time (NOT happening!).

And from Edinburgh airport?

 

 

To go to St Andrews from Edinburgh airport, it’s simple:

 

Jump on the tramway to Edinburg Gateway station (frequency: every 10 min), then take the ScotRail train to Leuchards (frequency: every 30 min) : during this journey along the cost, open your eyes because the view is amazing.

When you arrive, the Stagecoach bus will drive you to the city centre of St Andrews within 10 min (frequency: every 10 min).

 

A journey across time and space that you will never forget!

 

Be careful: if you arrive too late for the train, you will need to rent a car from the airport. Don’t worry, you probably aren’t alone: join the Facebook event to organise the car trip with other teams.
