Britannia Exterior C Marc Millar 1631909537


The OS Club is delighted to announce that they will be hosting a dinner aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia on Friday, 17th November 2023.

Britannia was launched from the John Brown & Company shipyard in Clydebank, Scotland, on 16 April, 1953. For over 44 years the Royal Yacht served the Royal Family, travelling more than a million nautical miles to become one of the most famous ships in the world. To Queen Elizabeth II, Britannia provided the perfect Royal residence for glittering state visits, official receptions, Royal honeymoons and relaxing family holidays. For Great Britain, she was a majestic symbol of the Commonwealth and a proud ambassador generating billions of pounds in trade deals. For the Royal Family and 220 dedicated crew of Royal Yachtsmen, she was home.

The OS Club now offers a unique opportunity to dine aboard this historic ship, voted the number one tourist attraction in the UK by Which magazine, with exclusive access to parts of the ship not normally available to the public.
