Want to climb on board the British Royal Familiy's yacht? With this activity you can see one of the most visited tourist attractions in the U.K.: the Royal Yacht Britannia, with more than a million miles of history.
What to expect on the Royal Yacht Britannia?
To enter the Royal Yacht Britannia, which docked in Edinburgh's port and was turned into a floating museum in 1997 by the order of Queen Elizabeth II, is a unique experience in which you'll get to know all of the secrets hidden in one of the most historic boats in the United Kingdom.
This yacht, which was the maritime home of the British Royal Family over almost half a century, and is considered one of the symbols of the crown, made its first voyage in 1953, travelling to tens of countries and accumulating over 1 million miles sailed, until 1997 when it became one of the most visited tourist attractions in the country.
Inside you can see the different cabins and halls which served to receive many state visits, such as the American president Ronald Raegan, Nelson Mandella and Winston Churchill; as well as the honeymoons of members of the British royal family, including Prince Charles and Lady Diana.
The elegant residence will uncover the realities of the day to day for Queen Elizabeth II, who adored the boat, through original pieces such as furniture, photographs and paintings.
