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.

The visit is worth every penny. The Chapel is a rare jewel, I haven't ever seen anything like that, at least in the UK. There are lots and lots of sculptures to study...you'll find yourselves analyzing each of them (at least it's what I did)....More

Jaw dropping chapel but the surroundings are marvellous as well. Expecially in autumn during a sunny day. Besides the chapel a walk is a must. When you go do not forget to stroke William, the mascot of the place.

I knew of the Rosslyn Chapel well before the Da Vinci Code and have long had it on my list of 'must see' attractions. I was not disappointed. It may not be the biggest place of worship nor the most ornate in a gilded way...More

Well worth an hour of any traveler's time. Just 30 minutes from Edinburgh this small chapel dates back to early Scottish history and has intricate stonework containing some mysterious carvings. The Da Vinci Code novel and movie made it famous--but it is actually far more...More

As fabulous as all the mystery that surrounds it Rosslyn Chapel is a must for historians and myth chasers alike. The guide was knowledgable and helpful. A decent visitor centre, cafe and gift shop with plenty of parking. Well worth a visit.
