A lovely day getting an insight into the Royal Family's yacht. The trip around the yacht is very well thought out and accessible to all. We enjoyed tea and cake in the tea rooms with a lovely view from our table.

It Is easy to find on Ocean Drive in Leith. You get a lovely warm welcome and an explanation of the audio device that guides you round on your tour. The ship is immaculate. The day we visited the sun shone and we soon felt the nostalgia and the history that HMY Britannia is steeped in. We enjoyed tea and... More

What a great attraction, went with our three children 9,9 & 10 and we all enjoyed it. Spent a good 2 hours going around and could have spent much longer if time had been available. Will certainly be back. Have already recommended to several friends who have since visited and thanked us for the recommendation. A "must do" if visiting... More

We went to Edinburgh for the day. We used the park and ride and went to tour the royal yacht. It was £14 each we wondered if it was worth it. It definitely is. It is a very enjoyable tour over 4 levels of the ship. You can take the stairs or a lift to each one. your given a... More

Didn't go on board but the area has nothing else going for it. On the plus side, had a good tea and cake in Debenhams café with best view of the yacht.

We had booked our tickets on line before travelling aiming to beat any queues - it was actually really quiet when we visited. Once you find your way in through the shopping centre it's a wonderful experience. All the staff were extremely friendly and the audio commentary is pitched at just the right level to maintain interest as you wander... More

Arrived on the first bus of the morning to be greeted with a very modern shopping mall where the Royal Yacht is located on the second floor. Fast... More
