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.

We arrived just on time for a special explanation of the chapel. I listened every words and it reminded me what I read on my guide book, but with funny description of every stories of the church. We spent a good time.

About 7 miles from Edinburgh lies this beautiful chapel. Although small it is very intricate and the visitor centre and guide provide much information. The resident cat William, likes attention too!

This is a must see. Only a 20-minute drive by car. The visitor center is very nice with a little cafe and gift shop. Once you are in the chapel, a tour guide gives about a 30-minute history lesson of the chapel. Very interesting. She...More

I am very glad that I was able to see Rosslyn Chapel. It was much more interesting and beautiful than I had expected. Forget about the DaVinci code stuff---there's nothing in the crypt to see, but the main chapel was really special. We arrived there...More

We visited years ago while the chapel was under renovation. Just as beautiful as I remember. We didn't spend a lot of time here due to having a small child with us. There are guides who are very helpful and knowledgeable. The new visitor centre...More

Rosslyn Chapel is a monument to human imagination and the skill of the stone mason. You simple cannot understand its unique beauty from reading its history or seeing it in a film - "experience it" and I'm certain you will take away something of it...More
