Royal Yacht Britannia & Edinburgh Tattoo

We spend the morning at leisure before transferring to Edinburgh to visit the Royal Yacht Britannia. Built in 1952, the ship is now a museum and was voted the UK's no.1 attraction in 2014. The ship is formerly the sea borne home of the Royal family.

HMY Britannia has sailed over 1 million miles across the globe, transporting the Royal family in luxurious style from glittering state visits to relaxing family holidays. Here we enjoy a tour of this wonderful example of ship. Later we enjoy free time in Edinburgh before the Tattoo begins. We will also have the chance to see The Kelpies - the largest equine sculptures in the world. These impressive busts were constructed in a mere 90 days and pay homage to the mythological, transformative creatures that were said to possess the strength of 100 horses. From 9pm we enjoy the spectacle of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. The annual festival incorporates fantastic performers, military bands and brilliant fireworks displays for an awe-inspiring evening.
