THE ROYAL YACHT BRITANNIA TEA ROOM….

edinburgh 123

While on our break in Edinburgh we decided to visit the famous Royal Yacht Britannia which is now based in the historic port of Leith and classes as a ‘must-see’ tourist attraction.

It has played host to some of the most famous people in the world but home to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family has been its main business.

You can view the heart and soul of this most special of royal residences on either a guided tour or walk round yourself listening to all its history via a mobile phone.

I found it absolutely beautiful and had to sample some gorgeous cake in the ‘Royal Deck Tea Room’, which was built when the boat was retired. We had a choice of fruit and cheese scones,lemon drizzle cake and carrot cake, all of which were delicious and a must if you get chance to go round it, http://www.royalyachtbritannia.co.uk/
