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.

I really enjoyed my visit to the chapel, though it had nothing to do with the nonsense Dan Brown wrote, but because of the masonic and even Templar history. There are many interesting carvings in the chapel that have significance if you know what you...More

very interesting visit, although it is well known through the Da Vinci Code book the visit to the place is well worth it without the references in the novel

Billed as a tourist-attraction, far and wide, but then full of pious notices inside that it is a 'working chapel', so please no photography etc. If it's a working chapel, I shouldn't need to pay £9 to enter for some personal reflection time, should I?

Building being small having a guide give a standing 'lecture' for 15 minute is a god idea. Then details ( and there are a lot) can be discovered by roaming around.

if you take Lothian service 37, marked 'for Roslin', that will bring you to the village and just a few minutes' walk from the Chapel. You can get a 37 from the city centre and the journey will take 45mins approx. Full travel... More
