The Royal Yacht Britannia was the ocean-based home of Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family for over 40 years, sailing over a million miles around the world!
From the moment you arrive, you'll be swept up into a world of nautical luxury and pristine privilege. Soak up the atmosphere in the Visitor Center, as you learn the history of Royal Yachts through exhibits and photos, including a 3-meter LEGO version of the Britannia. Then grab an audio guide and walk the gangplank onto the Britannia herself.
Explore all five decks, including the Sun Lounge, the Engine Room, and the Royal Deck Tea Room, where many a Royal traveler enjoyed a cuppa with a view. The State Apartments, where guests like Nelson Mandela and Winston Churchill once slept, are also covered by the audio guide.
Don't forget to visit the gleaming Rolls-Royce Phantom V, which once traveled on the ship, and is still aboard. When you're all shipped out, you can head back to Leith on extended shore leave, with plenty of memories and photos of your time aboard this first-rate five-star vessel.
