Create an itinerary including Rosslyn Chapel
A location associated with the Knights Templar, Rosslyn Chapel is the setting for many stories involving alternative histories. However, these stories are more fantasy than fact, and the chapel stands today as a remarkable historical and architectural landmark. The rich medieval and Gothic architecture rewards a careful eye with a wealth of hidden symbols--many have tried to interpret their meaning. Attend one of the free introductory talks on the chapel's history that take place daily. Don't leave the basement out of your tour: There you will find the architect's original plans sketched on the wall. To visit Rosslyn Chapel on your trip to Roslin, use our Roslin trip planner.

  • Beautiful, unique building - a definite 'must-do' whilst in the area. The car parking is ample, tour times are well-spaced with circa 160 people per entry, visitor centre features a well-stocked shop....  more

  • Great inside and out. Due to previous experience with churches and castles I decided to to the inside first. We had time to look around with the guide map before the Guide began her talk. She...

  • Rosslyn chapel is a beautiful visit off the beaten track. Steeped in mystery and history. Worth it to take your time admiring the intricate carvings inside the chapel.

  • I highly recommend this old and unique Church. It really is a spiritual experience visiting it. I visited it on 10/ 05/22, with my parents, and I have added pictures of it separate from this review. The lady at the till was really nice, talkative. And the talk in the church was amazing, and I got to talk to both ladies in the church too. They are all very enthusiastic about where they work, the churches history, architecture, it's hidden meaning, and stories.
  • Absolutely fascinating visit. Read some complaints about the cost of admission, but I disagree with these. The money collected is obviously well managed and used to preserve a truly unique cultural heritage. The talk given in the chapel is perfect in it's length, descriptiveness, and information. I would highly recommend making a visit.
  • Absolutely mind-blowing. It's fantastic. What a mysterious place! We were given a short talk by the staff, and it was amazingly informative. Wonderful staff, wonderful place. I'll definitely go back there.
  • Wonderful place to visit. The Chapel itself is an amazing unique example of medieval architecture...drenched in mystery. And the experience was great, enhanced by the friendly and informative staff. Definitely recommend visiting. Currently you need to book a slot before you arrive.
  • The chapel has amazing history and stone carving. Visited on a Thursday afternoon which was quiet and had enough time to admire the interior. Staff was very helpful too. The castle ruin 10 minutes away was also well worth the visit.
