We found this delightful gem of a place while traveling to Berwick. It's small but there is a lot to see. Having said that I wouldn't like to be here when the coach parties arrive. Our guide told us that due to the Da Vinci...More

A miracle in itself that one book put this Chapel on the must visit list for many - me included. Great outcome for preservation of history & a place of worship. However the rather hefty entry fee to see a small chapel - albeit one...More

Rosslyn Chapel is just a short ride away from Edinburgh. The best part about it is that the staff who work there are really passionate about it and love talking about the architecture, masonwork, and history of it. They are also very unapologetic about the...More

It's a shame that no photography is allowed inside the chapel as the masonwork inside is so intricate, you'll be fighting not to snap a frame here and there (don't! It's a place of worship so respect must be practiced at all times!!!). I'd read...More

I would say yes and no. It’s a medieval church, fascinating for adults but less so for very young children. But the visitor centre has a kids area where one family member can amuse the young ones while others have a more... More
