Founded in 1446, Rosslyn Chapel today attracts visitors from far and wide, drawn by its unique and mysterious carvings and the beauty of its setting. The chapel took some 40 years to complete and its ornate stonework has inspired, intrigued and attracted artists and visitors ever since. A new visitor centre tells the Chapel’s story – from its origins to beyond the Da Vinci Code – and has an attractive coffee shop and gift shop.

Information is available for visitors in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Russian, Polish, Mandarin and Japanese.
