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.

My wife and I visited the Chapel after hearing about it from friends. My wife has read the book (Da-Vinchi code I think) so we thought that we would visit. I did look at the web-site where it does say that photography is not allowed....More

Having tried to visit Rosslyn some 25 or so years ago and found it closed, and then some time later being thwarted by a ‘booked tours only’ policy, I was delighted to finally see inside. The visitors’ centre is very welcoming with a small, well...More

This is definatly worth a visit, if you are lucky with the weather, you can enjoy the view from outside the church. Also, if you've gone on a tour in the highlands, a trip to this chapel ties in wonderfully with this. Its super easy...More

Fantastic experience though its smaller than you think and I would expect in the summer it will be very busy. Not so much for under 10 year olds. Visiting in October there were few tourists and you get plenty opportunity to look around. Volunteer guides...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
