Departure Point

Royal Yacht Britannia, Ocean Drive Ocean Terminal, Edinburgh EH6 6JJ Scotland
At your leisure, make your own way to the Royal Yacht Britannia at port in Leith (15 minutes from central Edinburgh). Before boarding, pass through the fascinating Visitor Centre to learn a bit of the ship’s history, see splendid historic photos and pick up your headset. This ship – which traveled more than one million miles during its 44 years in service – is the last in a line of 83 Royal Yachts. 

Take a promenade along the five decks as your audio guide shares fascinating stories about the British Royal Family and the many guests who spent time on board such as Sir Winston Churchill, Boris Yeltsin, and Nelson Mandela. Admire the ship’s many features from the furnishings on loan from the Royal Collection to the State Drawing Room, the Sun Lounge, and the Admiral’s Cabin. Fun for all, boat enthusiasts will particularly enjoy seeing the working side of the ship such as the crew's quarters.

If whimsy strikes you, head to the Royal Deck Tea Room where you may purchase sandwiches, baked treats, warm drinks or alcoholic beverages. Relax in the same spot where the British Royal Family enjoyed extravagant buffets and receptions over the years.

I thought the whole experience from start to finish was superb, really friendly staff and very interesting tour. The audio was really good and we used the museums devices. The cafe was a nice way to finish the whole tour. We will be coming back in December and using the free annual pass with the children

What a beautiful ship. It is meticulously maintained. It appeared from both the commentary and the photographs that the royal family Loved mixing with the crew and the family were able to relax and just be themselves. The visit was an amazing experience with the added benefit of the audio guide
