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.

A little treasure quite visited thanks to the Da Vinci code movie. The inside of the chapel has been well maintained, while the outside presents many ruined parts.

We visited and it was well worth it. The place is small but it was well restored. Stay for the free explanation of the history. Unfortunately, you cannot take photos inside the church.

The masonry is nothing short of breathtaking. It would take months to really see every facet in great detail. The signage was most welcome to point out key things. We even got to see the adopted cat in the chapel. For those acquainted with the...More

We visited the Chapel about 10 years ago and wanted to see the results of the recent renovations. It was lovely. We were lucky to catch a talk from a well informed and lively member of staff. She added lots of humour to an informative...More

On a recent cruise which included Edinburgh, we were left with 1/2 day with no formal plan (having been to Edinburgh before). My husband wanted to see Rosslyn Chapel, which has reputed historical ties to the Templars (and the Masons) so we grabbed a taxi...More

Probably can not add much to what has been said. Very, very busy! A lady gave a short talk which was appreciated. A popular place. Be sure to see the castle also. Just before you get to the Chapel, take the right side foot path,...More

We've looked at tours that would pass by the Rosslyn Chapel as part of their itinerary but none interested us since most would take us to the borders or the Hadrian wall which was not of particular interest to us. What a surprise to learn...More

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

Rosslyn chapel is about 5 miles south of Edinburgh, and you can take a Lothian bus (deep red tops) number 37 or 40 to get there. The A701 starts at the east end of Princes Street at North Bridge (on top of Waverley station... More
