“Fantastic! Really worth a look. Very interesting and informative .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 NEW via mobile

A must see if you are in or near Edinburgh. Very reasonable at about £12.00 per adult. Audio tour with handset. See lots of rooms, bedrooms, laundry, hospital, day rooms, etc. There is a tea room but didn't use it. Toilets available on board. Took about 90 minutes to go around. Car parking is free and there is a shopping centre next door to Britannia if you want to do a bit of shopping after! Excellent!

“A very interesting afternoon out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 NEW

My day out at the yacht was lovely. You are provided with a personal audio guide was was great and allowed you to enjoy the attraction at your own pace.

There was lots to see and it was all very interesting.

I had lunch at the cafe - a sandwich and a hot chocolate. I found the cafe expensive and with little variety - only soups, salads or sandwiches.


Tip - some of the passage ways are very small and may be impassable for wheelchair users.

“Not what you woukd expect.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 NEW

The Royal Yacht is worth a visit, it is much more spartan inside than you would expect. Go and have a look you'll be surprised!

“Amazing visit to the ship.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 NEW

We lived how accessible the whole ship is, to all ages, without changing the inside too much. Really like the handset you use on the tour and don't forget to stop in the tea room!
