This year we decided to shake things up and fly into Edinburgh instead of London and take a couple days to see the city again. Let me state this at the beginning, we're going to fly that way again and stay for longer, we loved Edinburgh before and fell in love all over again.
We were staying just off the Royal Mile so walked it a few times and Princes Street even more, but something we'd never done before and wanted to do this time was see the Royal Britannia. This is the royal yacht that has recently be laid to rest in Leith and boy was it worth a visit.
I admit to thinking before we got there that it would be a bit boring and we'd move through quickly, boy was I wrong. It was fascinating to see how the royals and laymen lived together in such small quarters, boy to I mean small!
From top to bottom, rear to stern [?], we took in the ship and would recommend others make the short and easy trip out to see it.
