Had a great time on the Royal Yatch Britannia. There is much more to it than you could ever imagine.

The amazing ship has been preserved with great care and gives you a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the British Royal Family in their most relaxed and intimate moments. The most visited tourist attraction in Edinburgh it is just a one km walk from the apartment

Once HM Queen Elizabeth II 's private yacht it was decommissioned in the 90s by the governement and since then has been a wonderful museum. There are five levels to view and with the aid of audio guides in every possible language you can take your time to visit the majestic royal residence on sea. The location is quite on the other end of the city and if you are planning a visit please ensure you do so before 4pm. Take the bus route 35 or 22 that ends at Ocean Terminal Mall. The entrance is on the second floor of the mall and may seem a bit odd for a Royal Yacht but its a connecting gateway to the ship.

Former Royal Yacht now moored at Leith. Found it an interesting insight into how the Royals lived. Look out for the Wombat in the officers mess!
