Closure Notice

The Royal Yacht Britannia

Following the recommendations issued by the Government’s health advisors about avoiding unnecessary social contact and not using public transport, in order to protect our staff and visitors, we have taken the decision to close Britannia from Thursday 19 March until further notice. We will be reviewing this regularly in line with Government advice.

We hope to see you back on board very soon, please keep checking our website and social media for updates.
