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.

The chapel itself is stunning and I found myself stopping next to almost every single carving, because they were so fascinating and detailed. The introduction talk was very informative and there was also a mini presentation/ performance with medieval instruments that was great (Friday, 1:30pm)....More

History oozes out of every corrner, column, etc. The "whispering" confessional what our favorite (doorway entrance - ask about it). Wonderful guides - well worth visiting.

He provided excellent information on a wide range of topics from Robert the Bruce (Braveheart) to origins of key words like "whiskey" in Scottish Gaelic. He matched Scottish...More

We've heard a lot about this chapel and decided to pop in on the way to Edinburgh. It is very ornate, every inch sculptured in very fine detail. Let's not forget that these men, hundreds of years ago, were operative masons! So if you're looking...More

Worth a visit especially if you are into history (or the davinci code!) The only disappointment was not being allowed to take photos inside as it is really stunning.

if you take Lothian service 37, marked 'for Roslin', that will bring you to the village and just a few minutes' walk from the Chapel. You can get a 37 from the city centre and the journey will take 45mins approx. Full travel... More
