Excellent morning spent at HMY Britannia. So much to see, the self tour guide system was really informative without being boring. Well worth the entrance fee. We spent at least three hours on board as so much to take in, including the tea rooms 😃

My family and myself spent a lovely time onboard the Royal Yacht. It was very nostalgic and we could picture the Royal Family having a lovely time cruising the seas/oceans.

We had some time on our hands and decided to take a look at the royal yacht and I am glad we did, it is a tribute to a bygone age , it was smaller then we thought it would be by modern super yachts but it has class . everything was gleaming and polished and its incredible how tiny... More

one of the highlights of our trip. to see how the royal family lived and mixed with the staff onboard the ship. There is so much to see and you almost feel as if you as if you were in your own living room. Eating on the ship was lovely and would recommend the Cullen skink soup.

Loved the tour! Beautiful ship preserved in it's original state. The tea & scones in the Tea Room were delicious! Everything was extremely accessible for my friend on her mobility scooter as well!

We really enjoyed our visit here and one of the main reasons was because of the way you could touch anything and wander around without feeling you were under the scrutiny of staff at every corner. The audio guides were great as there was no reading to be done and the children were much more interested by this. Lunch was... More

Drinking a champagne cocktail on a royal yacht on my birthday, lovely. The tour is informative but not too overwhelming, there's a few props to try on and the staff are lovely. A good 1/2 a day out, try and pick a sunny day to get the most of the views around you.

Just come out of this attraction in Edinburgh!! £14 per adult but worth it ! A great walking tour at your own pace through the yacht. Very interesting tour . Tea and scones in the restaurant is also a must ! Plenty of toilets throughout the tour ! Free wi-fi too. Don't forget your camera. A must in Edinburgh... Just... More
