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.

I enjoyed the visit to this mysterious church. I felt it expensive but they do look after the building. If you are into the "holy grail then it is a worthwhile visit. We traveled by bus. well worth buying a £4 a day travel ticket.

Rosslyn Chapel is stunning! The architecture dating back 500 years is unbelievable especially as it's built from sandstone and was left open to the elements for a period of 200 years at one stage. It is a miracle that it survives intact. Our guide was Maureen who brought the whole story alive for us making it very interesting indeed. She... More

This place is full of charisma and atmosphere, even though it's an historical place the majority of people go there due to the da Vinci' code...if you are in Scotland the visit surely worths!

Fantastic place to visit. Steeped in history and with a resident cat in tow called William. Will never forget the stonemasons apprentice. I recommend you take the time to listen to the resident expert who brought the chapel to life with his descriptive analysis.

I visited this beautiful chapel several years ago but it was undergoing major renovation works and was covered in scaffolding- I went back a few days ago with my husband- there is now a modern extension and cafe- they are charging £9 per person which I think is ludicrous- we asked to visit the gift shop that is next to...

This was on our list of places to see. Had a wonderful morning there. Well laid out with interesting exhibits. We went for the talk in the chapel which was very informative. Would recommend this and that you pick up one of the leaflets to get the most from the experience. Also liked the ability to up grade the entry... More

Second trip to Rosslyn Chapel, and first visit to their Visitor Centre. Everything about the Chapel and the Centre is compact but elegant. The storyteller (a lovely lady) was very engaging and she related many facts about the history of the place. The entry ticket isn't cheap, but it's worth it.

The Chapel is full of impressive stone carvings. It is a truly amazing place. The craftsmanship of the stonemasons is marvellous. There is so much to see and wonder at. The talk was informative and entertaining. Well worth a visit.

Very interesting historical site & really enjoyed the visit. Excellent two given by the "guide" added to the interest. Very relaxed format for a "tour". Just pull up a pew and listen or wander around listening. Even if you think you've had your fill of cathedrals and churches this one is a little gem. A cuppa at Molly's Team Rooms... More

Last visited this chapel over four years ago and its just as good on the second visit. A must for history fans and Dan Brown fans. The visitors centre is very modern with all the required facilities and the coffee shop is very good.
