Rated Scotland’s Best Visitor Attraction for 12 years by national tourism agency VisitScotland, Britannia was home to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family for over 40 years, sailing one million miles around the world. Berthed in Edinburgh's historic Port of Leith, Britannia is now a five-star visitor attraction, as well as an exclusive evening events venue.

Step aboard and follow in the footsteps of royalty to see where Prince Charles and Princess Diana honeymooned and Liz Taylor, Frank Sinatra and presidents Reagan, Mandela and Gorbachev were wined and dined.

There are five main decks to explore with a fascinating audio guide included in the ticket price, as well as a version for children. We also provide British Sign Language tablets, Braille script and each deck is fully accessible for buggies and wheelchairs. Take in stunning waterfront views from The Royal Deck Tea Room where delicious home-made cakes, soups and sandwiches are served. Experience one of TripAdvisor’s Top 5 UK attractions for yourself and enjoy a fantastic day out aboard The Queen’s former floating palace.
