Overview

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.

History in full setting! Chapel was founded in 1446. No pictures can be taken inside of Chapel. Beautiful restoration and upkeep by donations and volunteers! Bathroom available and a small cafe. Gift store with great items.

Very straightforward to get the no. 37 bus from Edinburgh North Bridge to Rosslyn Chapel. Truly amazing chapel and worth spending some time here. I personally liked the stonemasons' 'marks' in the crypt, the Green Man through the seasons, and the skull carvings outside. No...More
