    My wife and I really enjoyed the visit. Very professionally laid out and the guide headsets are a must they are included in the visit price. I especially liked the view of the engine room. Travelling to the Britannia was very daunting at first, train into Waverley station, cross the road and jumped on the number 22 bus and it takes you to the visitor centre.

    Easily the best attraction we have visited in years! We were warmly welcomed by friendly and knowledgeable staff. The route through the yacht and displays was clear and smooth, allowing ample time to see and absorb everything and the audio tour device couldn’t have been clearer nor easier to use. Altogether a great experience.

    Superb. The audio guide is excellent and informative. Well worth the ticket price. Use the No 11 bus from Edinburgh as this gets you nearer to the entrance for the ticket office and tour. There are other buses but they drop off on main road which requires a longer walk. The access is into the new Shopping Mall, second floor up escalators. Follow signs.
