Welcome Aboard The Royal Yacht Britannia

Welcome Aboard The Royal Yacht Britannia

Step aboard The Royal Yacht Britannia as the Best UK Attraction (Which? Magazine) re-opens, Wednesdays – Sundays, from 12 May! Just 2 miles from Edinburgh’s city centre, head to the sea to follow in the footsteps of Royalty. All ages will love to explore the five decks with their own free audio guide, with a special version for kids.

See the State Apartments where the Royal Family spent their holidays to the Western Isles and where celebrities, presidents and famous figures in history, from Sir Winston Churchill to Nelson Mandela, were entertained at sparkling state functions. Head below decks to where the crew of 220 Royal Yachtsmen lived, slept and worked as well as the gleaming Engine Room.

With waterfront views, the Royal Deck Tea Room is the perfect place to enjoy cakes, scones, soups and sandwiches, all made on board in the Galley kitchens.
