Planning a Visit

We look forward to welcoming your class to Rosslyn Chapel!

Rosslyn Chapel is a very small site, and so we ask you to get in touch and discuss the logistics of a visit with us in advance.

For larger numbers, we may need to split a class into small groups and rotate them around the site. In some situations, it may work best for us to deliver components of a workshop at school, pre- or post-visit to the actual Chapel. In such cases, we would come out to your school at no extra charge.

You can discuss any special requirements or visit logistics with us at the time of booking.

Rosslyn Chapel can cover the cost of coach or mini bus hire for a visit to the Chapel for Midlothian Council schools. Contact [email protected] for more information.
