Swing into Christmas on board the ​Royal Yacht Britannia ​Saturday 10th December ​2022

A Black Tie Gala dinner on board the Royal Yacht Britannia 

The perfect start to Christmas 

An exclusive evening of fine dining and music on board the Royal Yacht Britannia with overnight stay at the 5* Balmoral Hotel.​

This is a wonderful way to get in the festive mood as you relive the elegance of a bygone era with the splendour that is the Royal Yacht Britannia. This will be a musical and gastronomic evening to remember.​

​A Black-Tie evening of music and fine dining in the State Dining Room on board the Royal Yacht Britannia, the kind of entertainment and fine dining such as the numerous Royal family members and heads of state would have enjoyed. ​

​Just 48 couples will be invited to enjoy a private viewing of the Royal Yacht and enjoy a sumptuous 4-course meal whilst being delightfully entertained.​

With exclusive use of The Royal Yacht, guests will find the same high standards today as when Britannia was in Royal service. The evening will start with a red-carpet welcome followed by Champagne and canapés in the ship’s drawing-room whilst you are entertained by the resident pianist. ​

​Then enjoy a guided tour, where you will have access to Britannia’s five decks, and a unique insight into the history of the Royal Yacht and how the Royal Family and crew lived and worked on board. ​

​The sense of occasion builds as dinner is announced. The grand mahogany doors are opened to reveal the magnificent candlelit State Dining Room. Using the finest, seasonal ingredients, our menus are created in the original Royal Galley and served by Britannia’s expert butlers. You will then indulge in a delicious four-course dinner such as Her Majesty the Queen would have enjoyed. ​
