You’ll receive a truly warm welcome at Britannia’s Visitor Centre in Ocean Terminal where you can view displays and historic photographs that detail Britannia’s fascinating past.

From Sir Winston Churchill to Boris Yeltsin, Rajiv Gandhi to Nelson Mandela - some of the world’s most influential people were welcomed on board. Now you are free to see what they saw, to stand where they stood.

Every part of Britannia includes rich treasures to enjoy. Almost all the pieces in the State Apartments are on loan from The Royal Collection, with kind permission of Her Majesty The Queen. Elsewhere you will see artefacts from the previous Royal Yachts, including the fabulous silver in the Officers’ Wardroom. You will have a chance to see the working side of the ship, from the once sweltering heat of the laundry to the crew’s densely packed quarters.

Tour highlights include the State Drawing Room, The Queen’s Bedroom, the Sun Lounge and the Admiral’s cabin.

Our award-winning gift shop has exclusive gifts and popular Britannia souvenirs, as distinctive as Britannia herself.

Britannia is berthed alongside the stylish Ocean Terminal shopping centre which contains a choice of over 80 different high-street shops, restaurants and cafes with scenic waterfront views. There is free parking and as the Royal Yacht is only 15 minutes away from Edinburgh city centre, it is the perfect addition to any trip.

Britannia is owned by The Royal Yacht Britannia Trust, a non-profit making charity, and all proceeds go towards her long-term maintenance.
