For the event of a lifetime… The Royal Yacht Britannia.

Award Finalist ‘Best for Parties and Special Events 2015’ by Conde Nast Johansens

She’s one of the world’s most famous vessels, and one of the most beautiful. Britannia served the Royal Family for over forty years and sailed over one million miles on 968 official visits. Berthed in the historic port of Leith, she is now one of the world’s most prestigious corporate event venues.

The Royal Yacht is a truly unique setting for a variety of memorable events. Outstanding intimate dinners to larger banquets and stunning receptions can be held on board. Step back in time in the State Apartments where kings and queens have dined or choose the stylish and versatile Royal Deck, with magnificent views over the Forth. Combined or used individually, each is a stunning space perfect for exclusive dining, elegant receptions, product launches, award ceremonies, cocktail parties or dancing; the opportunities are endless.

It is our personal service and meticulous attention to detail that makes an event on the Royal Yacht so exceptional. Days of preparation go into every event held on board and everything is considered from the fresh flowers and outstanding entertainers to gleaming silver cutlery and personalised menus bearing Britannia’s crest. All food, including canapés and petits fours, is freshly prepared in the Royal Galley led by Britannia’s Executive Chef and using the finest ingredients. Each client is assigned an Event Manager who will help with the detailed planning of your event. Our skill is creating your event of a lifetime.

Unfortunately we are unable to hold weddings or wedding receptions on board Britannia.
