Overview
More
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.

This Chapel was begun in 1446 and was to be only the first part of a much larger structure, but the remaining sections never proceeded beyond foundations and so the Chapel stands alone. Judging by the existing building, the overall effect would have been astonishing....More

Such a lovely place that would be especially nice to visit minus the crowds. The presentation is excellent. The brochure guide makes it easy to find specific carvings you might want to see. It's easy to imagine another time and place long ago. The gift...More

Easier probably to get to if you have a car, but it's totally do-able as a day trip by Bus from Edinburgh. We had a early coffee/scone in Edinburgh and at the north bridge caught the bus out to Rosslyn. It took about 50 minutes...More
