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.

You have something better to do go there. The location is nice, very clean and famous but hey there are several attractions to be seen so visit some others.

We've wanted to visit since we saw it featured in a documentary. We weren't disappointed. Friendly ticket desk staff (£9 entry per adult) and knowledgeable guides (only a passing mention to Da Vinci Code thankfully). I found it very spiritual, a very special place. Lots...More

Dealing with the negative first, the system to queue is pretty bad, the queue for a ticket, gift shop and tea shop all sits on top of each other so on a busy day it is chaos, this should be better organised, even the toilets...More

We heard the talk and spent 90 minutes after walking around. It is a sacred place, full of amazing carvings. We took the Lothian bus from Edinburgh...terrific ride and prompt. The countryside was beautiful
