Your time on board

Visitors on the Verandah Deck

Enjoying the tour on the Verandah Deck

Whether you are planning a full day out to Britannia, or if you are in a rush and have just an hour to spare, we have something for everyone.

Quick visits

With our audio handset tour (included in the admission price), you can start your tour wherever you like. If you are short of time, we suggest you start on the Gold Level (level 1) so you can discover the magnificent State Apartments and you should have time to see the Crew's Quarters too. You'll also be able to view our 11 foot LEGO replica model of Britannia in our Visitor Centre.

2-3 hours (Recommended)

Perfect - you will have time to enjoy the full audio handset tour, exploring all of Britannia's five main decks. You should also have time for a cup of tea and a home-made scone in the stunning Royal Deck Tea Room too.

Half a day's trip

With extra time you can relax and take your time as you go around Britannia. Seats are provided so you can sit down and take in the beauty of your surroundings. Why not enjoy lunch in the Tea Room? As Britannia is berthed next to Ocean Terminal you should have time to visit some of its 70 shops, day spa or cinema as well.

Here for the day

If you have a whole day, you could take the five-star Majestic Tour bus to The Royal Yacht Britannia and Ocean Terminal. This wonderful hop-on hop-off tour can also drop you off at some of Edinburgh's other Royal attractions, including the Palace of Holyroodhouse and Edinburgh Castle. The Majestic Tour ticket entitles you to 10% discount on admission to Britannia - please visit the Majestic Tour website for further information. You could take a stroll along the Water of Leith to the National Gallery of Modern Art or, just a short distance away, unwind in one of the waterfront bars at the Shore.
