Our Promise To You - Our Safety Measures

Temporary Closure Notice

We are sorry to announce that the charity that operates The Royal Yacht Britannia have taken the decision to temporarily close to visitors from 9am on Wednesday 4 November until further notice.

We will be getting in touch with you if you have booked a ticket.

We look forward to welcoming you on board when we can.

Please keep checking our website and social media for updates.

When you visit, you can be confident that we are fully adhering to all the published guidelines, and more, as our standards are already incredibly high, and carried out with passion and precision by our dedicated staff.  

The safety of you and our staff is our overriding priority. Our plan has been created so that it's flexible and we're ready to adapt it if the need arises; either as a result of further guidance from the Government, or because of things we learn during the early stages of our own re-opening.  

Be assured that everything will be taken care of, so all you have to do is have a great day out!
