The Royal Yacht Britannia

Carers go free • Free disabled parking • Free audio tours for visually impaired and learning difficulties • Free printed guide for hearing impaired

The Royal Yacht Britannia is Scotland's premier tourist attraction.  The route around the Yacht is accessible and well organised though you do have to exit the Yacht at each level to use a tower lift to change floors.

The entrance is through a large shopping centre that you have to walk through to find the lift to the Yacht entrance. (bit odd!)

When buying your ticket you are offered an optional audio tour which is available for the visually impaired, individuals with learning difficulties and a multitude of different languages.

Fantastic value and very interesting.  Manual wheelchair recommended.

Disabled toilets Disabled parking • Guide dogs, hearing dogs and other assistance dogs permitted
