Intressant och roligt att få komma ombord på drottningens yacht. Audioguiden fungerar mycket bra och vi fick veta mycket vi inte visste förut. more »Interesting and fun to get aboard the Queen's yacht. The Audio guide works very well and we were told much we didn't know before.
Easy to get to as the no .22, 34,or 35 bus goes straight to the ocean termini. Head to the shopping centre ,to the second floor. Your given headphones to listen to commentary on the ship. You start from the top level and work your way to the engine room at the bottom. You get to see the Queens bedrooms ,banqueting room ,below desk,engine room. Its fantastic. Really lovely cafe with gorgeous freshly made scones and the shop at the end has some lovely gifts to bring home. Fantastic morning all round
Great tour, lots to see. The Yacht itself is very big. The audio is very informative. Certain places are inaccessible. Not hard to imagine the Royal family on board! There's even a car on board. Staff are friendly. Tea Room is clean and service is great. Well worth it.
