Rosslyn Chapel is a 15th Century building, and its historic nature prevents us from making it fully accessible.
Here is the information that you may need before deciding to visit.
Disabled parking is in the main car park, which is about 150 metres from the entrance. It is an uphill walk. Wheelchair users who feel that they may need assistance should call us prior to their visit, and we will do our best to assist you.
The New visitor centre is fully accessible. There are electronic glass sliding doors on entry and exit.
The Chapel entrance is only 31" wide and this is not accessible for all wheelchairs. We find that electric wheelchairs or sports wheelchairs do not fit. If a wheelchair user is able to transfer into our folding wheelchair they may enter the chapel that way. If you have any doubts, please contact us for advice prior to visiting, as we would not wish you to be disappointed.
Inside the Chapel
Inside the chapel there are single steps to the Baptistery and Lady Chapel. We have temporary ramps which can be put down to allow a wheelchair user to access these areas on request.
The Crypt is down a very steep flight of steps and is not recommended for anyone with mobility problems. Our staff can show you video imagery of the crypt on request.
Enjoying the Chapel
An audio guide is available for visually impaired visitors. Please ask for the audio description handset on arrival.
A audio guide with a signed tour of the chapel is also available for visitors who use BSL.
