“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

A very worthwhile attraction. This was a facinating insight into life on board the Royal Yacht, It's great that it is open for everyone to see. The cafe on board is well worth a visit and not overly priced.

“Great Ship :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The whole family enjoyed a visit to the Royal Ship Britannia in February 2013 after staying in Edinburgh. A great attraction. Staff were polite and informative. Audio tour was great :) It allowed you to go at your own pace which was excellent and allows you to skip bits that don't interest you. The ship wasn't over crowded by any means so you could easily move around the thin corridors which can be problems at attractions like this. Overall an excellent trip. We were there for about 2 - 2 1/2 hours :D

“A must on your visit to Edinburgh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The highlight of my day, and my weekend in Edinburgh, the Royal Yacht was fascinating to visit. The audio tour was informative and interesting, and as a solo traveller, covered everything I needed to know without having to ask anyone. The staff were friendly and professional.
The tour ends in a large shopping centre with lots of coffee shops and restaurants.
Well worth the entry fee.
