Royal Yacht Britannia - Review

Tickets From $21.7

Her Majesty's Yacht Britannia is the previous Royal Yacht of the British ruler, Queen Elizabeth II. She was the 83rd such vessel since the restoration of King Charles II in 1660. She is the second imperial yacht to endure the name, the first being the really popular dashing cutter assembled for The Prince of Wales in 1893. She is currently for all time moored as a show ship at Ocean Terminal.

The team of Royal Yachtsmen consisted of volunteers from the general administration of the Royal Navy. Officers were named for up to two years, while the "yachtsmen" were drafted as volunteers and administration could be conceded to "The Permanent Royal Yacht Service".

HMY Britannia, when on regal obligations, was escorted by a Royal Navy warship. The yacht was a customary sight at Cowes Week in promptly August and, for the most part, for the remnant of the month, was home to HM Queen Elizabeth II and her family for a yearly voyage around the islands off the west bank of Scotland there was some dispute over the sitting of the boat, with some contending that she might be better moored on the Clyde, where she was assembled, than in Edinburgh, with which the yacht had not many connections.

Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh Reviews

  • A very nice self-guided tour of Britannia. It shows you how the Queen and the royal family used to travel. The visit takes you to the quarters of the British royal family and to all the other parts of the vessel: engine room, crew's quarters, etc. You can visit inside and on the deck of the vessel. If you wish, you can enjoy the Royal Deck Tea Room. The staff is friendly and helpful. They will gladly take your picture. A must to visit in Edinburgh.

  • Loved the view and all of the history. Just seeing pictures of Princess Dianna when she was so young. Her and Prince Charles spent part of their honeymoon on board. Also, Prince William and Princess Kate had their reception dinner there. It's interesting to see the quarters of the royals versus the workers. They also have a medical center on the yacht. They give you the phones to take with you throughout the tour and it's self guided. I really enjoyed hearing about all the people who have been on board.

  • A great few hours can be spent exploring the yacht and the displays. Staff all really helpful Great little fudge shop on board as well as a large souvenir shop in the terminal. A real insight into the Royals and their lives off camera. Lovely restaurant on deck with lunch and tea menu. With views of the water you can imagine yourself cruising in luxury.

  • At first the £16 entrance fee seems a bit much, having done the tour I can say it is worth the entrance fee. It is a self tour with your own personal handset. Great history of the royal family with all of the original furnishings in place.

  • HMS Britannia, What a wonderful asset this was to the UK, what a magnificent tourist attraction it is for Edinburgh Visit the enlightening exhibition and appreciate how the queen used the Britannia as a floating embassy for receiving foreign dignitaries and heads of state whilst on visits around the world. See the state rooms and the dining room. The bridge and the officers Ward room. Enjoy High tea in the deck conservatory. Allow around 3 hours for the tour and another hour for the tea then consider one of the sight seeing boat tours from a local quay.
