Edinburgh & Royal Yacht Britannia

Wakefield, York, Manchester

The Experience

Join the Northern Belle luxury train for a fascinating excursion to Scotland’s capital, including the magnificent Royal Yacht Britannia.

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.

On arrival at Waverley Station, transfer to Ocean Terminal, Leith, where Royal Yacht Britannia has been berthed 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.  

After touring the magnificent ship, if time permits you may have some free time to explore Edinburgh.


Later rejoin the train for a sublime five-course dinner, served with our sommeliers’ selection of house wine.
