All ages will love to discover the UK’s Best Attraction (Which? Magazine), The Royal Yacht Britannia this summer. Listen to the adult or children’s audio handset tour at your own pace as you explore all five decks.

Step into the State Apartments and see where celebrities and world leaders, from Nelson Mandela to Sir Winston Churchill, were entertained by HM The Queen. Snap a family photo trying on the sailors’ uniforms in the Crew’s Quarters where 220 Royal Yachtsmen worked and relaxed. Stop by the NAAFI to sample the delicious fudge, made on board and look into the gleaming Engine Room. Find out who would be best suited for a life at sea with our knot tying challenge. Remember to spot the corgis hiding in the Cuddly Corgi Treasure Hunt!

Finish your tour in the Royal Deck Tea Room and sample the delicious cakes, scones, soups and sandwiches from the Royal Galley. After your visit, apply for your complimentary Annual Pass which gives you 12 months free admission!
