The Royal Yacht Britannia played host to some of the world’s most famous people, but above all was home for the British Royal Family. Now you are welcome on board this magnificent ship to experience this floating palace for yourself – discovering the heart and soul of a very special royal residence.
Britannia is a five star must-see attraction when you visit Edinburgh. Stroll around the decks, following in the footsteps of the British Royal Family and their guests. Now you are free to see what they saw, to stand where they stood.
You’ll receive a truly warm welcome at Britannia’s Visitor Centre in Ocean Terminal, then step on board and enjoy a rare glimpse into the life of the Royal Family and the dedicated crew of Royal Yachtsmen.
The complimentary audio tour will help you explore Britannia’s five main decks. Choose from 21 languages and there is a junior tour in English (ideal for the under 10s).
Highlights include the State Dining Room, the Sun Lounge, The Queen’s Bedroom, the Crew’s Quarters and the Engine Room. Almost all of the furniture and paintings in the State Apartments are on loan with kind permission of Her Majesty The Queen. Full access for single child buggies and wheelchairs.
