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.

Wonderful sacred place to visit in the outskirts of Edinburgh! Stay longer, avoid big tour groups and enjoy the excursion!

Made a special journey to see Rosslyn chapel. Having never seen Da Vinci code, I didn't realise that was why it was famous, just knew that it was a point of interest. The building is beautiful, no doubt. The stone carvings are exquisite, and a...More

Terrifically ornate stonework and shrouded in mystery. If anything, it shows that there was early contact between Scotland and people who had travelled to north America, long before Columbus discovered Central America. In order to really appreciate the chapel and its atmosphere it is best...More

We went on an organised trip for the day and we spent some time here. One of the ladies gave a presentation and was wonderfully informative. The chapel is stunning and well worth a visit

if you take Lothian service 37, marked 'for Roslin', that will bring you to the village and just a few minutes' walk from the Chapel. You can get a 37 from the city centre and the journey will take 45mins approx. Full travel... More
