Before leaving Edinburgh, we went to the Ocean Terminal at the port of Leith to visit the Royal Yacht Britannia, a former yacht of the British Royal family.
There were a lot of exhibits on display for visitors to view before boarding the yacht. Here are some of the exhibits.
Some photos of HM, the Queen of England.
We then proceeded to board the yacht.
View from the yacht.
The command point.
The Admiral’s cabin.
The Queen’s Rolls Royce.
The Sun Lounge.
The Queen’s bedroom.
The Admiral’s quarters and dining room.
The State Dining Room, where the royal family dine.
My husband spotted these at the State Dining Room, on exhibit. These are gifts from Sarawak when Prince Philip visited Malaysia in 1989.
The Queen’s sitting room.
The drawing room.
The Chief Petty Officers’ mess.
The sick bay.
Here was where my camera ran out of battery and I left my spare battery in the car. What the heck?? Luckily I had my handphone with me, so I was able to snap a few more photos, though they were not as clear.
This is the engine room.
And that ended our tour of the Royal Yacht Britannia. It was certainly a good experience to see what the Royal family went through when they were at sea years ago. No doubt a comfortable home away from home.
