The Royal Yacht Britannia, after being decommissioned a few years ago, now rests in the docklands of Leith. You enter the Queen's former yacht through the 2nd floor of a shopping and entertainment centre called Ocean terminal. Apparently the Queen is none too chuffed that her former yacht is attached to a shopping centre. The Scottish Press at the time, also reported that the Queen wanted the ship scuttled rather than have tourists walk all through it. Public money paid for it. Public money paid for it to be in service, and now it's only right that the public get to see it.
I'm away on holiday again! Off to Poland today (Katowice, Bydgoszcz and Warszawa) and then Italy (Bologna) before coming back just in time for school! Toyozo will be pressing the publish button while I'm away...enjoy the photos, keep the comments coming and I'll get back on the DP ball when I get back.
