Unforgettable heritage days out in Edinburgh

Save money on fantastic heritage attractions near Club campsites like the Royal Yacht Britannia and Traquair House using our Great Savings Guide.

Royal Yacht Britannia

No trip to Scotland’s capital city is complete without a visit to the Royal Yacht Britannia. If you’re driving, free parking is available at the multi-storey Blue Car Park at Ocean Village, but a motorhome-friendly outdoor alternative is available just to the left of the car park entrance. 

Free headsets are available for self-conducted audio tours, or you can scan a QR code to listen to the tour on your own mobile device and headphones. A lift offers access between all decks, and wheelchair users can access most parts of the ship. 

You will feel the magic of being transported back in time to an age of modest elegance and style. The Royal apartments are far from opulent; they are understated and homely. In complete contrast, the communal accommodation of the petty officers and ‘Yotties’ on the lower decks is rudimentary and cramped.

It will take you around two hours to make your way around, but make sure you allow time to stop for tea and cake in the fancy Royal Tea Room. 

Club members qualify for a 10% discount on the entry fee for up to five people. Find out more about Royal Yacht Britannia and how you can save money on other Heritage Days Out near Club campsites in our Great Savings Guide here.
