Loved it. A real slice of royal history up close and personal. Our 10 year old son was not so keen but there was a spot the corgi challenge which he liked. The tea room is splendid. We had the scones with clotted cream and jam and coffee. Absolutely gorgeous! Very good souvenir shop to. Well worth the visit.
Visited this morning and we were not disappointed. Lovely to board the Royal Yacht Britannia and have a look around her. Impressed with the tour that takes you to every part of her. The staff were friendly and welcoming. As we were celebrating my partners birthday he was treated to a special afternoon tea. Got to say the food was amazing. Thank you to the staff (especially Andrew ) for looking after us.
