Edinburgh's City Guide

The Royal Yacht Britannia

This magnificent ship has played host to some of the most famous people in the world. But, above all, she was home to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family. Now you are welcome on board to discover the heart and soul of this most special of royal residences.

Voted as the UK’s number 1 attraction on Trip Advisor in 2014, the Royal Yacht Britannia is your chance to follow in the footsteps of the Royal Family and explore this floating residence of royals with an audio tour available across all five of its decks.

Home to the British Royal Family for over four decades, the Royal Yacht Britannia gives you the chance to get to know a genuine royal residence and learn the history of the boat at sea as well as getting to know more about its past. The audio handset tour is known as the world’s most translated as it can be enjoyed in 27 languages and with many areas to see you’ll pass the bridge, the Royal Apartments, the Crew’s Quarters and finish up in the Engine Room, the heart of the yacht.

To enjoy stunning views across the waterfront you can settle in the Royal Deck Tea Room and there is also a gift shop on board as well as dedicated exhibitions to the Royal Racing Yacht Bloodhound as well as Royal Sailing. Don’t forget to stop by The Sun Lounge, famed as the Queen’s favourite room.
