Edinburgh Royal Yacht Britannia

Manchester, Wakefield, York

The Experience

Join the Northern Belle luxury train for a majestic excursion to Edinburgh and the Royal Yacht Britannia, the former floating palace of HM The Queen.

Take your seat ready for a fine dining experience on the outward journey to Edinburgh. Liveried stewards serve a delicious brunch at your table, which is set with immaculate white linen and sparkling glassware.

Relax and enjoy the journey to the Scottish capital, gazing at the changing scenery through your large picture window.

On arrival at Waverley Station, transfer to Ocean Terminal, Leith, where Royal Yacht Britannia is berthed. Berthed at Leith ever since it was decommissioned in 1997, the Royal Family’s beloved yacht was a place where they enjoyed many happy holidays.

Today it is one of Scotland’s most popular attractions. Start the tour at the Visitor Centre, learning about the yacht’s rich history. Then tour the five main decks with the help of an audio guide. Highlights include the luxurious State Apartments, royal sleeping quarters and personal photographs of the monarch and her family.  

Also make sure to visit the Bridge and the gleaming Engine Room. After touring the magnificent ship you will have some free time to explore Edinburgh.
Return to the train after your fascinating day for a champagne reception.

The highlights continue with a sublime five-course dinner, served with our sommeliers’ selection of house wine on the return journey.
