Rosslyn Chapel has developed a very successful and exciting Junior Tour Guide programme. Every year we welcome the new P7 class from Roslin Primary school. They provide engaging and interesting tours by children for children, inviting primary schools from across the Lothians to join them.
The guides transform into characters connected to the chapel to explore, learn and begin to understand some of the chapel’s unique history and heritage. The tour and quiz are aproximately an hour long and led totally by the Junior Guides.
These tours are free for a visiting school including entry into the chapel and the Rosslyn Chapel Trust will pay for your transport.
You may decide to stay after the tour and explore the chapel, grounds or Roslin Glen further. You are welcome to do so on a self-guiding basis.
To get a better idea of what the Junior Tour Guide Programme is all about; download this years brochure and watch the little introductory video…

The Junior Tour Guides programme runs weekly on Thursday mornings through to the end of March. If you would like to bring your class, remember, Rosslyn Chapel Trust will pay for your bus!

The tour kept all the children interested. The guides were supportive and very well prepared.
All the guides should be very proud of themselves, what an amazing job they all did!!
