Rosslyn Chapel

Founded in 1446, as the Collegiate Church of St Matthew, 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 and mysterious symbolism have inspired - and intrigued – artists and visitors ever since. Today, there are countless theories, myths and legends associated with the Chapel, many of which are impossible to prove or disprove conclusively. Rosslyn has survived turbulent times and has recently been undergoing an extensive programme of conservation to ensure its long-term future. A new state-of-the-art visitor centre tells the Chapel’s story – from its 15th century origins, through the Reformation, to the Da Vinci Code – and has an attractive coffee shop and gift shop. The Chapel is open every day of the year except 24th, 25th and 31st December and 1st January, Mon - Sat 09.30 -17.00 (last admission 16.30), Sunday 12noon - 16.45 (last admission 16.15). Rosslyn Chapel Trust is a registered charity, number SCO 24324. Images supplied courtesy of Rosslyn Chapel Trust/ Antonia Reeve.
