Tickets for visiting Rosslyn Chapel

Now open daily

As part of the measures which we have introduced to keep visitors and staff safe, each day is now split into timeslots, allowing us to manage the capacity on site at any time.

Each timeslot lasts for 90 minutes and this time allocation includes:

  • time to look around the outside of the Chapel and take some photos (there is no restriction on exterior photography for personal use)
  • use our free map to find the main carvings inside and outside the Chapel
  • listen to one of the short information talks which are given at specified times of the day

During your visit, don’t forget to  –

  • explore the visitor centre and find out more about the Chapel’s history
  • buy a souvenir or two in our gift shop
  • have a drink or snack in our coffee shop, either to sit in or takeaway.

There are 5 timeslots on Monday to Saturday and 3 on Sunday.

We will ask visitors to leave the Chapel and grounds at the end of each timeslot to allow for extra cleaning and a smooth transition for the next visitors.

You will be asked to wait outside the visitor centre until the start of your timeslot so please come prepared for the weather!

Details of our times are given below.

  • Tickets should be booked in advance through this site and they will be sent to you by  email.
  • Bookings are open up to an hour before the timeslot starts.

Please note that your visit does not need to start from the beginning of the timeslot.

So, for example, if you book for the first one, you could arrive at any time from 9am but your visit would still end at 10.30am.

Make the most of your visit
Each timeslot includes a short presentation on the history and key features of the Chapel by one of our Guides. You are welcome to sit and listen or keep looking round.

To help all visitors enjoy their experience, we have information boards around the site and provide free leaflets in a variety of languages, with maps showing the main features inside and outside the Chapel.

We are constantly adding more dates and look forward to welcoming you!
