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 architecture is stunning and the history is very interesting but I couldn't help but feel slightly disappointed. At £9 for entry this isn't cheap; given the crowds of visitors and hence limited access, it made £9 seem steep. I could only recommend going early...More

Thanks for posting your review. Like many places, the Chapel can become busy in July and August and your advice to come early is helpful. Afternoons can also be quieter. Admission (£9 adult, £7 concession, free for children in family group) provides a ticket which...More

We visited here on the way back up to Aberdeen from a trip to England. It's set in a very pretty part of the countryside, but is well signposted and easy to find from the main routes through and around Edinburgh. Parking was ample and...More

Lovely place to go! Fascinating history. Best probably to visit in winter when less busy. Staff are very friendly. It's great to see it is now being cared for again and is a working chapel
