Capital treats abound, from mighty castles and royal palaces to gourmet restaurants and arguably the world’s best performing arts festival.
Travel bucket list idea:
Royal Yacht Britannia
Edinburgh , Scotland, United Kingdom (UK)|www.royalyachtbritannia.co.uk|
One of the most famous ships in the world, this luxury yacht served the British Monarchy for over 44 years in multiple capacities, from official state visits to family holidays, travelling over a million nautical miles.
Now an immaculately-kept museum, you can tour five different decks, including the Bridge, the State Apartments and the crew’s quarters.
You can stop for an afternoon cream tea where the Queen herself would have sat in the Royal Gallery.
When to do it
The yacht museum is open all year round, seven days a week. Opening and closing times vary by season.
