Description:

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 visited this beautiful chapel several years ago but it was undergoing major renovation works and was covered in scaffolding- I went back a few days ago with my husband- there is now a modern extension and cafe- they are charging £9 per person which I think is ludicrous- we asked to visit the gift shop that is next to...

Second trip to Rosslyn Chapel, and first visit to their Visitor Centre. Everything about the Chapel and the Centre is compact but elegant. The storyteller (a lovely lady) was very engaging and she related many facts about the history of the place. The entry ticket isn't cheap, but it's worth it.

The Chapel is full of impressive stone carvings. It is a truly amazing place. The craftsmanship of the stonemasons is marvellous. There is so much to see and wonder at. The talk was informative and entertaining. Well worth a visit.

Very interesting historical site & really enjoyed the visit. Excellent two given by the "guide" added to the interest. Very relaxed format for a "tour". Just pull up a pew and listen or wander around listening. Even if you think you've had your fill of cathedrals and churches this one is a little gem. A cuppa at Molly's Team Rooms... More

Last visited this chapel over four years ago and its just as good on the second visit. A must for history fans and Dan Brown fans. The visitors centre is very modern with all the required facilities and the coffee shop is very good.

The only thing that spoiled our visit was the dull, grey weather, but the new visitor centre was warm and inviting, with a small cafe and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The chapel is much smaller than I had imagined from photos, especially the famous Apprentice Pillar, but it is well worth a visit. The chapel has undergone a... More

I have always wanted to visit the chapel and finally I made it. I was not disappointed it was a wonderful place to visit for all ages. The carvings inside the chapel were amazing, hard to believe how old they are.The guides are very informative and knowledgeable. Young children will enjoy looking for the different carvings of the Green Man,... More

Visited on 12th Feb 2017 - our third visit and best one yet. The afternoon was made perfect by an outstanding short talk from Margaret which blended the myths of Rosslyn with genuine history. Margaret deftly pointed out some fascinating architectural details that really brought the place to life. A very warm welcome at the front desk, too.

Well with taking the time to leave Edinburgh behind for a morning to visit this delightful place. Had the pleasure of sitting in on a half hour talk about the history of the place that is provided free of charge and the place also has a good little cafe for lunch.
