Description:

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.

Rosslyn Chapel is highly recommended. Its beautiful inside and out. There was a talk while we were there which was both interesting and informative. There are so many hidden gems and interesting stories of the history of the building.

It is not grand, it is not massive but believe me when I say it is BEAUTIFUL. It is a chapel steeped in history but for me the most incredible element of it is most certainly its incredible beauty. The stone work and masonry is worth a visit in its own right however the dramatic backdrop, friendly staff and fascinating... More

Because of Dan Brown and the Da Vinci Code this place is phenomenally busy. The carpark was full when we arrived at 11am including 3 coaches – good for business. The shop was doing a good trade and the money they earn is used to restore the building, so that's a good thing. The chapel itself was really interesting but... More

Very modern centre with cafe & shop with interesting displays. The construction video is very well done. The chapel is beautiful. I'd have loved a couple of photos though. Price wise it's at the upper range of acceptable but still worthwhile and nice to be out of Edinburgh too.

This was the attraction I liked the most in Scotland. Not crowded, located in the outskirts of Edinburgh and surrounded by a pictoresque scenery. Friendly staff. Get acquainted with William, please.

My sister and I visited here on Sunday 27th November and it was just the most beautiful chapel I've ever seen. We bought our tickets on arrival and at £9 each I thought this was a little steep however by the end of our visit I would of payed twice this and still been happy. The two ladies at the... More

The privately owned Rosslyn Chapel came to prominence after being featured in Dan Brown's 'The Da Vinci Code', however it deserves more appreciation than such notoriety bestows. It is stunningly intricate in detail both inside and out (but more so inside). Excellent information boards direct your attention to details you may otherwise miss. Photography inside the chapel is not allowed,... More

Good for families and all ages? The visitor center is a nice addition... offering a gift shop, bathrooms, indoor meeting space to gather after all have walked the grounds of the chapel and the interior while enjoying cafe like bites and coffees. Things I liked about the chapel... the carvings so intricate and layered in references(able to get very close),... More

We took the route#37from North bridge and were at the Chapel in 50 mins.Entrance fee as about 9 GBP and there is a lecture every hour on the hour which is most informative. With close to 200,000 visiting every year this is a good day outing.
