Description:

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.

I have visited this chapel because it was recommended. There I have found out that it is the chapel in which some parts of Davinci Code is filmed in. I was quite disappointed because is forbidden to take pictures inside. Nevertheless this church is indeed a master piece of architecture and art.

Visited because of the film and was not let down, spectacular Chapel but very small, dont know whether it warranted the £9.00 entry fee, but glad we went, another one ticked off!

Interesting plkace to visit even on a wet and windy Scottish day. Guided tour takes about 20min but you can spend much longer inside and outside the Chapel. The tour is free. Admission charges less than 10 pounds. Taking photos is prohibited inside the Chapel but pleny of oppotunities outside. There is a quality shop and cafe serving morning teas... More

We rushed from Edinburgh to see before closed, so glad we did. What a fantastic little church. The history of the church alone is great and then there is DaVinci Code that made it more interesting! Makes you wonder if they Holy Grail is there somewhere... The guided tour is very informative. Loved this little church!

Okay, I confess: if it weren't for Dan Brown, I'd never have heard of Rosslyn Chapel. Once in Scotland, we decided to have a look at it and it came to be a great. There's no secret chamber to be found like in the book, but a perfect gothic example with an interesting history behind, especially the one involving the... More

Incredible detail carved into the chapel. It is worth waiting for the tour guides to do their explanantion as they point lots of small little details that you would miss just by looking at the chapel. The inside has been preserved with some type of sealer that kind of takes away from the Chapel, but I understand that used the... More

Just called into Rosslyn chapel on way up to Edinburgh having watched a documentary on it recently. It cost £9.00 to get in per adult, which I felt was worth for the amount of time we spent there. I wouldnt imagine my teens would have "got it", but if you are interested in quaint old churches with amazing carving with... More

We visited Rosslyn Chapel on a cold, wet day and thoroughly enjoyed our three hour stay. It is impossible not to admire the magnificent ornate carvings and the informative stories about the history of Rosslyn Chapel given by the enthusiastic guides. Well worth going out of your way to visit.

We were very fortunate to be able to see the chapel in the company of the person who has recently restored it to its current state. This person being Nicolas Boyes. He told us about all the problems - (now rectified) the chapel has undergone since being built. The tour was fascinating Nic Boyes was very passionate about his involvement... More

We arrived just in time to join the guide this is included in the entrance price, well worth listening to.There was plenty of time to look around there are lots of very interesting details in the architecture and plenty of information boards. Make sure you take time to walk around outside... More
