The Royal Yacht Britannia Tour with Audio handset
A unique five-star visitor experience and Scotland’s best visitor attraction for the past 12 years (VisitScotland), The Royal Yacht Britannia is an essential visit while in Edinburgh. For over forty four years, the Royal Yacht sailed over one million miles on nearly a thousand official visits for the British Royal Family. Now berthed in Edinburgh’s historic port of Leith, Britannia is a fascinating visitor attraction and also one of the UK’s most prestigious event venues. The captivating handset tour (available in 30 languages) takes visitors round five decks at a leisurely pace and is a rare glimpse into the public and private lives of the British Royal Family. Highlights of the tour include the State Apartments, the Sun Lounge and the Engine Room. Experience stunning waterfront views and waiter service in the Royal Deck Tea Room, serving delicious cakes, freshly baked scones, soup and sandwiches, as well as tea, coffee, soft drinks and a selection of alcoholic beverages. (Please note it is not possible to book the Tea Room). Britannia is owned by The Royal Yacht Britannia Trust, a non-profit making charity, and all proceeds go towards her long-term maintenance.
