Royal Yacht Britannia

UK»Scotland»Lothian»Edinburgh»Royal Yacht Britannia

Royal Yacht Britannia: This ship has played host to some of the most famous people in the world. But, above all, she was home to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family.

At Britannias Visitor Centre you can view displays and historic photographs that detail Britannias fascinating past.

The original ornate binnacle, which the Royal Family would gather around for family photographs, is on display here. This was carved from a single piece of oak and is displayed alongside a recreation of the Wheelhouse so you have a taste of the Britannia experience before you even step on board.
