Britannia reports best year since opening


308,906 visitors in 2015, the highest since Britannia’s opening year

The Royal Yacht Britannia is celebrating achieving its highest visitor numbers since its opening year in 1999. The iconic attraction, based in Edinburgh, ended 2015 with a record 308,906 visitors, an increase of 13,577 (4.6%) on 2014.

Once The Queen’s floating palace, now a five star visitor attraction, nearly 5 million people have visited Britannia since it first opened to the public in the Historic Port of Leith in Edinburgh, in October 1998.

Commenting on this success, Britannia’s Chief Executive, Bob Downie said, “This growth in our visitor numbers is a great tribute to our fantastic staff, and how hard they work to provide the highest levels of customer experience, because the true test of any great organisation is the consistency of their performance, as seen through the eyes of their customers”.
