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 intricate detail of this chapel is astounding. Only disappointment was not being allowed to take pictures inside the chapel. Would love to have shared photos with family who were unable to take the tour due to mobility issues.

This was on our must see list of Scotland. We stayed in Edinburgh and it isn't too far from the city. Rosslyn Chapel has obviously become more well known and more of a magnet for tourists since the film The DaVinci Code came out, but...More
