Overview
More
Rosslyn Chapel, dating back to 1446, is just seven miles from Edinburgh city centre and is open to visitors all year. The Chapel's setting and the mysterious symbolism of its ornate stonework have attracted and intrigued visitors for generations. A starring role in The Da Vinci Code propelled it into the international spotlight. There are countless theories, myths and legends associated with the Chapel and our tour guides will be able to tell you more about these, and the building's history, when you visit. Please note that photography inside the Chapel is not allowed but there are no restrictions on outside photography. New visitor centre with touch-screen technology, letting you see the carvings close up; gift shop and good coffee shop. Full details of how to get here and what to see and do is on our website.

This is well worth a visit; the chapel has a fascinating and mysterious past and lots of very interesting history. The interior is incredible and I would highly recommend but be warned, the entrance fee is pricey.

Rosslyn Chapel has a small cafe and gift shop before you get into the chapel a well as toilet facilities. We saw William the cat and had a nice walk around. The sculptures were amazing and the stories behind some of them were phenomenal!

Breathtaking chapel. Loved the guide and her explanation of the chapel's history and carvings. Give yourself plenty of time to walk inside and outside of the chapel. Very nice gift shop on site with a small coffee/sandwich shop.

Fabulous to see the chapel being so lovingly conserved. The age of this place is mind-boggling, and the many political events that it has survived through. And it's still an active place of worship, so enter with a certain reverence, whether you are religious or...More
