Owner 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.

“well worth the bus trip - captivating!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2012

I was completely captivated by the chapel, the guide, the visitors centre and the whole experience. It was well worth the 40 min bus trip on the 15 bus from Edinburgh. The chapel itself is in a shocking state of disrepair but you can see the improvements already.

“Knights of the Templar Built”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2012

This Chapel, just south of Edinburgh is an ongoing restoration project, so be aware of the scaffolding. That said, the Chapel is small, but historically extremely interesting, and involved in the movie the Davinci Code..
