The Royal Yacht Britannia

The Royal Yacht Britannia was home to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family for over 40 years, sailing over 1,000,000 miles around the world. Now berthed in Edinburgh, you can follow in the footsteps of Royalty to discover the heart and soul of this most special of Royal residences.
Discover what life was like on board Her Majesty’s floating Royal residence. Follow in the footsteps of world leaders such as Sir Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela and Rajiv Gandhi.

The fascinating audio tour is included in the admission price. It is available in 30 languages and there is a children’s version. There are also tablets available with the tour in British Sign Language, a printed version of the English language tour, an audio handset for people with sight loss and an English Braille script.

As part of the tour, why not visit the Royal Deck Tea Room? You can enjoy freshly prepared, home-made food, stunning views and a warm welcome. Treat yourself with speciality teas, coffees and lunch where the Royal Family previously would have enjoyed drinks receptions, sumptuous buffets, or played deck games.
