Royal Yacht Britannia.
Royal Yacht Britannia
The Royal Yacht Britannia has sailed more than one million miles around the globe, taking the Royal Family on more than 900 official voyages and holidays all over the world, from places like Antarctica to the South Seas. Britannia is one of the world's best known ships and was launched at John Brown's Shipyard in Clydebank Glasgow in April 1953
Britannia was finally decommissioned in 1997 in the presence of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh after its last and longest voyage from England to Hong Kong. It marked the end of a Royal Yacht.
In 1998, the Edinburgh port of Leith, won the bid against several other major UK cities to become the ship's permanent home where she is now moored as an exhibition ship at the Ocean Terminal shopping centre on the shores of the Firth of Forth.
