THE QUEEN'S FAVOURITE SHIP

The Royal Yacht Britannia is Her Majesty the Queen’s private yacht. For years it was a place to escape the pressures of the world and relax in an intimate family atmosphere. Decommissioned in 1997, it is now docked in Edinburgh and provides a fascinating insight into the life of the monarchy, both on and off duty. The red carpet will be rolled out as you board via the Royal Brow, previously reserved for the Royal Family.

During this memorable visit you will learn how the Royal Family and crew lived and worked on board and hear stories of what life was like when the Royals sailed away. Britannia was launched in 1953 and for more than 44 years served the Royal Family travelling more than a million nautical miles to become one of the most famous ships in the world. It hosted glittering state visits, official receptions, royal honeymoons and relaxing family holidays.

STEP BACK IN TIME

Edinburgh is known as the Athens of the North for its neo-classical architecture and you will begin to see why on this fascinating excursion. This style of architecture characterises the city’s New Town, which is already more than 200 years old having been built during the Georgian era. Join one of our historical interpreters on a unique tour of Edinburgh from the perspective of a Georgian lady.

When the New Town was built, no shops were included in the designs and so the ladies of the house had to make the journey to the medieval Old Town to buy provisions. You’ll take a step back in time discovering Georgian Edinburgh and this is a unique and fun way to discover the geography of the city’s layout and how its citizens have lived throughout some of the most significant periods in history.
