Edinburgh & the Royal Yacht Britannia (half day)

Edinburgh has always played an important role in the lives of the Scottish and British Royal families. Your tour today begins with a panorama of the city. See the main sites of Edinburgh including Princes Street and see the famous Royal Mile with Edinburgh Castle at the top, and the 16th Century Palace of Holyrood at the other end.

Then proceed to Leith, now home to the Royal Yacht Britannia. Launched in 1953 this fine ‘Floating Palace’ was home to the Royal family whenever they traveled long distances overseas. She was a regular fixture during the famous Cowes Week and every summer she gently cruised the Western Isles of scotland, giving her passengers privacy and the ultimate peace and quiet.

Tour Britannia at your leisure and see the gracious Royal apartments. Visit too the Officers and Yachtsmen’s quarters and the gleaming engine spaces. Afterwards enjoy some time to browse the Britannia shop.
