"The Royal Yacht Britannia" Royal Yacht Britannia - Leith Tip by Suet
Royal Yacht Britannia - Leith, Edinburgh: 21 reviews and 50 photos
Tread the decks Princess Diana trod, see pictures of Royalty, see the Queen's Bedroom... You go to Ocean Terminal and go to the top floor, pay your money and pick up an audio baton in the language of your choice. You then press the appropriate buttons when you reach the numbered plaques around the ship.
I felt very proud to be British when I visited the Yacht.... it was a symbol of our country abroad. I liked all the history and the stories about the boat. The funny thing is that it is not as luxurious as I would have expected it to be, very low key and austere for a Royal Yacht. The old fashioned communcation system was like something from WW2, but of course the boat was built just after that. Technology was not like it is today.
If you are feeling like doing something a bit special, you can hold corporate events on the ship. The Kitchens are still working kitchens!
