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.

Beautiful building, knowledgable staff. Made more famous after the book, Davinci Code. If you are holidaying around Northumbria, make it a day out, you will not be disappointed.

Very peaceful and beautiful chapel. There is an admission fee to get in but well worth it in my opinion. Don’t skip it because you have to pay!

The intricate carvings and interesting stories/theories behind it make for an interesting visit. Even without these the chapel is beautiful and worth a visit.

We went there with lothianmotorcoaches for a day trip. A wonderful place with perfectly sculpted masonry. Love the place. The lothianMC told us a bunch of interesting stories about the countryside and the borders. You fall in love with Scotland in a second :)

I would say yes and no. It’s a medieval church, fascinating for adults but less so for very young children. But the visitor centre has a kids area where one family member can amuse the young ones while others have a more... More
