With Mother’s Day fast approaching, now is the perfect chance to treat your mum like royalty.
For over 44 years, Britannia was home to one of the world’s best known mothers and grandmothers and, indeed, great-grandmothers, Her Majesty The Queen, and she famously described the Yacht as ‘the one place I can truly relax’.
Spend Mother’s Day in sparkling style on board the Royal Yacht Britannia and enjoy a luxurious Champagne cream tea whilst taking in the beautiful views across the Firth of Forth from the Royal Deck Tea Room. An exclusive Mother’s Day cocktail, a Pomegranate Martini, will feature on the menu.
