Rosslyn Chapel, dating back to 1446, is just seven miles from Edinburgh...

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 came to visit Rosslyn Chapel for the 2nd time in 3 years. Came when it opened right after the services of Remembrance Sunday. Also observed the beautiful ceremony held in the town centre. There is plenty of parking in the lot as you drive in and also in the overflow lot. Both are just a very short walk to... More

This has been on my to do list for ages and at last we can tick it off! The entire visit was vey enjoyable. At first I was surprised at how small the chapel appeared but it is absolutely packed with a total feast for the eyes. The talent of the stone masonry, symbolism, detail and the stories were absolutely... More

A fascinating chapel full of mystery and symbols and an amazing history. Make sure you try and get to hear the guides talk as they show you some of the hidden faces in the roof and walls etc

Much more that the Da Vinci Code, but a good excuse to go visit!! A lot of history, amazing carvings, full of details and a lot to learn from them. As the word chapels means is not a big place, but great atmosphere and beautiful seeing. The Visit Center is pretty good and has great souvenirs from the chapel and... More

There is so much history and legend associated with this tiny chapel south of Edinburgh that it essentially necessitates a visit if you are ever in the area. Although the museum's staff are quick to assert the unlikelihood of any of the Templar lore being true, that does not mean that they do not provide a fantastic, humourous, and witty... More

Beautiful building and well worth a visit! I went because of the Da Vinci connection but got a lot more bang for my buck once at the Chapel. It's small so i was lucky i went during offpeak season (November). Lots to see inside the Chapel and returnable handout great. Grounds are also worth strolling around and there is a... More

The Da Vinci Code is what drew me to the chapel. The incredible carvings, colourful history and atmosphere kept me there for a lot longer than I was expecting. There are short presentations throughout the day (usually every hour) which incorporate the history and stories while also highlighting important carvings. I would have missed many features if I have not... More

Rosslyn is an excellent place for anyone with an interest in history, especially masonic. Since my previous visit a modern visitor centre has been added and the prices have risen somewhat but it remains a very worthwhile visit

We were fortunate to visit in November when the chapel was relatively quiet. The guide added a lot to our visit and is on the hour, included in the price.
