Overcrowding

Unfortunately due to massive popularity of the Da Vinci Code book, visiting Rosslyn Chapel is nothing short of an adventure. The chapel is far too small to sustain the current number of visitors. As a result, the best time to visit it is in the morning, as soon as it opens.

Photography

Taking pictures is allowed in Rosslyn Chapel but due to the limited space available, no tripods are allowed.
