Description:

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.

Six of us, 3 generations, visited Rosslyn Chapel having read and heard a lot about it over a number of years. Children gain entry for free if accompanied by an adult, which makes entry £9 for an adult or £7 for concessions very reasonable. Free carpark too. There's a free talk inside the Chapel, but you should also leave lots... More

What a lovely place to visit. With it being Easter the Chapel was being used for private prayer. It was strange to walk about with this going on but everybody took it in their stride. It is really worth visiting, the architecture is fabulous. Get the no37 bus from Princes Street, Edinburgh, it drops you at the top of the... More

If you have read Dan Browns book Da Vinci Code then this is a must. There are guides who welcome you to sit in the chapel whilst they explain the history of the area and the family who commissioned the building. The walls tell their own story, the masonary is a guidebook in itself as you follow the carvings around... More

Visited this chapel which became really popular because of Da Vinci Code. The architecture is beautiful both from the outside as well as inside. A must visit.

Fantastic place to visit. So much information from the guide, Margaret. The stone carvings have to be seen to be believed.

Never seen such a chapel: especially on the inside. Beautifull carving and sculptures. Only too many tourists with cars and busses; crowded in the little chapel. The small visiterscentre is okay.
