After 44 years of loyal service, this yacht now bobs in serene retirement in Leith. Christened by Her Majesty the Queen in the year of her coronation, it was the last in a series of ships used by monarchs on trips abroad. You will receive a warm welcome at Britannia's Visitor Centre. Here you will discover Britannia's past through exhibits, and photographs before collecting your audio handset and stepping on board. The self-led audio tour will enable you to enjoy the Yacht's five decks. Starting at the Bridge and finishing at the Engine Room, you can discover the reality behind life and work on board. Highlights include the State Dining Room, the Queen's Bedroom and Crew's Quarters.
