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.

The Da Vinci Code made the Roslyn chapel famous again, but the chapel has been there for so long and has been a beautiful building for centuries. It has also been in disrepair for centuries, but in it's present state, it is well worth a...More

Not many people who visit Edinburgh are told about Rosslyn Chapel mentioned in the book ‘The Da Vinci Code’. Actually it’s 45 minutes away from Edinburgh and this is where the ultimate climax took place, where they searched for and reached, ‘The Holy Grail’. We...More

The chapel itself is stunning and I found myself stopping next to almost every single carving, because they were so fascinating and detailed. The introduction talk was very informative and there was also a mini presentation/ performance with medieval instruments that was great (Friday, 1:30pm)....More

History oozes out of every corrner, column, etc. The "whispering" confessional what our favorite (doorway entrance - ask about it). Wonderful guides - well worth visiting.

We've heard a lot about this chapel and decided to pop in on the way to Edinburgh. It is very ornate, every inch sculptured in very fine detail. Let's not forget that these men, hundreds of years ago, were operative masons! So if you're looking...More

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
