What to Expect:
State Drawing Room, Royal Yacht Britannia
The Royal Yacht Britannia was a working ship whose goal was to advance British interests around the world. As such the ship was fully equipped with grand rooms that would serve this purpose. The State Rooms were used for entertaining businessmen, dignitaries and heads of state.
The State Dining Room was where the Queen would often host grand banquets. Guests included Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. You’ll find many gifts on display that were given to the Queen during her travels. This was the largest room on board the ship
The State Drawing Rooms was also used for official entertainment and included a baby grand piano. It could host up to 250 guests
The Sun Lounge was reportedly the Queen’s favourite room onboard the Royal Yacht Britannia, and she would often start her day here.
The Verandah Deck was where the Royal Family would relax in private, with painting, games and even a collapsable swimming pool.
The Royal Deck
The Royal Deck, Royal Yacht Britannia
The Royal Deck Tea Room was used for games and entertainment. Today you can enjoy a meal on the Royal Deck with plenty of sandwiches, soups, salads and cakes to choose from. There is also an extensive drinks menu with alcoholic beverages.
See the Admiral’s Quarters, where the Yacht’s admiral would work and entertain. These are amongst the most spacious quarters on the Yacht that reflect the admiral’s importance. You’ll also get to see the quarters of the crew, as well as working rooms including the laundry room, The Navy, Army and Airforce shop and Engine Room. These all played a vital role in the day-to-day running of the ship.
This was the command and control centre onboard the Royal Yacht Britannia. The steering wheel was located one floor below in the Wheelhouse, meaning Yachtsmen would receive orders from the bridge above.
