Visit the ship the British Royal Family used to tour the world.

Situated in Leith at the Waterfront, Britannia was the vessel the British Royal family sailed around the world on for many years. It is a stunning piece of nautical history and impressive in its quality, history and size. There are five decks of this impressive ship and it is very much as it was, complete with carpets, sofas and soft furnishings. Oh, how the other half travelled. 

The Royal Deck Tearoom is a lovely spot to enjoy coffee, cake or something more substantial overlooking the water.
