Royal Yacht Britannia Annual Pass

Visit once, come back free for a year.

Tripadvisor’s no.1 UK attraction, The Royal Yacht Britannia was home to Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family for over 40 years, sailing one million miles around the world. Now berthed in Edinburgh’s historic Port of Leith, Britannia is a 5-star visitor attraction and exclusive-use evening events venue.

There are five main decks to explore with a fascinating audio guide included, in both an adult and children’s version. British and American Sign Language tablets and Braille scripts are available with each deck highly accessible for buggies and wheelchairs.

Follow in the footsteps of Royalty to see the State Apartments where the Royal Family entertained foreign dignitaries and celebrities from Frank Sinatra to Nelson Mandela as well as enjoying holidays to Scotland’s Western Isles.

Head down to the lower decks to see where 220 Royal Yachtsmen lived and worked. See a tour highlight, the gleaming Engine Room. Remember to spot the cuddy corgis hiding throughout in the Cuddly Corgi Treasure Hunt!

Enjoy stunning waterfront views from the Royal Deck Tearoom to sample delicious cakes, scones, soups and sandwiches.

After your visit, you can apply for your free Annual Pass to visit The Royal Yacht Britannia as many times as you wish for 12 months! *See website for full T&Cs.
