Royal Yacht Britannia

Royal Yacht Britannia The Royal Yacht Britannia is one of the world's most popular ships, which got built in Scotland at John Browns Shipyard in Clydebank on the banks of Glasgow's famous river Clyde. Built in 1953 the Royal Yacht Britannia served the Royal Family for over forty years and sailed on 968 trips to some of the most remote places in the world. In 1997 Britannia set sail on her last voyage to Hong Kong, which was to be her last and longest voyage. The ship was then decommissioned at Portsmouth in the presence of the Queen and most of the Royal Family. The Britannia experience begins on the 2nd floor of ocean terminal in the visitor centre. Here you will discover Britannia's fascinating past through exhibits, displays and photographs before you collect your complimentary audio handset and step on board Britannia, a privilege previously reserved for guests of Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family.
