I found it interesting but I'm not crazy about the whole "royal pomp and circumstance."
Interesting to see how the Queen got around from country to country and her idiosyncrasies about certain things.
Would do it if you have time but if you don't, no big loss, grab a pint in town instead.
(Note: we walked there from town, it's walkable, and found that fascinating in itself to see how the real Scots live, but took an Uber back to save time.)

Any visit to Edinburgh should include a visit to the Royal Yacht.

This is a very sensitively presented exhibition.

We visited the royal yacht with friends from germany who found the ship had an amazing amount of history . The auto commentary gave a great insight into life on board the ship. Also loved the fudge that is made onboard . Overall well worth a visit

It’s lovely to learn that you had a really interesting visit. As you say, we make our Britannia fudge on board in our very own NAAFI; our resident confectioner will be delighted that you loved it. Thank you very much for your review.

Royal past time really. If you like seeing where the Queens bedroom and how a few people can really enjoy taxpayers money then go for it. Good weather is important but really seriously not worth it.
The tea room is a good idea, when you need a break.

A piece of modern history. Self guided tour with a 28 stationtalking handset. Commentary interesting but not so long as to be boring. Lovely restaurant with excellent well priced food. Service staff just delightful as were the whole Britannia Team. If you have limited time allocate half a day - you will not be disappointed.
