Once described as the Queen’s floating palace and her ‘home away from home,’ a visit to the Royal Yacht Britannia is a masterclass in style and luxury, and a unique insight into the lives of the British Royal Family. Host to glittering state and official occasions (the impressive state rooms have played host to kings, queens, presidents and prime ministers), this remains one of the most famous ships in the world. You will discover Britannia’s fascinating past through exhibits, displays and photographs, before visiting the Royal Apartments, where hundreds of original items are on display in the sun lounge, drawing room and bedrooms, as well as the working deck, officer’s mess, sick bay and engine room.
Open daily from 10.00am (July/August from 9.30am). Last admission is at 4.30pm (August), 4.00pm (April to July & September & October) or 3.30pm (November to March).
