Hampton Court Palace A Private Showround

A unique chance to experience a ‘showround’ of Hampton Court Palace on a day when it is not open to the public, which will give you ample opportunity to enjoy this fascinating building as part of a small and exclusive group. Hampton Court is a  Grade I listed Royal Palace. The building of the palace began in 1514 for Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, the chief minister of Henry VIII. In 1529, as Wolsey fell from favour, the cardinal gave the Palace to the King.


The Royal Yacht Britannia

The Royal Yacht Britannia helped to make the Queen the most travelled monarch the world has ever known. Not only did she and her family travelled the world on Britannia, but the world, its statesmen and leaders has visited them on board. The guest list therefore reads like a who’s who of world leaders, including Nelson Mandela, nine British Prime Ministers, including Sir Winston Churchill, seven American Presidents, two Popes and stars of the stage and screen such as Noel Coward, Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope, who were entertained just as they would be had it been a royal palace on British soil.

With exclusive use of The Royal Yacht, guests will find the same high standards today as when Britannia was in Royal service. The evening starts with a red carpet welcome as you are piped on board.

Edinburgh Castle

Sitting proud above the streets of the city centre, Edinburgh Castle is perfectly located.  With a long rich history as a royal residence, military garrison, prison and fortress, it is alive with many exciting tales. As you climb Castle Hill, you  walk in the footsteps of soldiers, kings and queens – and even the odd pirate or two.

Edinburgh Castle is home to the Scottish Crown Jewels  and The Stone of Destiny (the ancient coronation stone still in use today), which you will view exclusively as part of your private evening. 

Ceremony of the Keys and dinner at Le Pont de la Tour

The Ceremony of the Keys is the traditional locking up of the Tower of London each night. Set amidst the mighty battlements of this ancient fortress, it is one of the oldest and most colourful surviving ceremonies of its kind having been enacted every night, without fail, for well over 700 years in much the same form as we know it today.

There is no better time to enjoy the majesty of the Tower of London then when the public visitors have left for the day, and it is just the Yeoman Warders and the ravens still there.


Hogmanay is the Scots word for the last day of the old year and is synonymous with the celebration of the New Year in the Scottish manner. Celebrated Hogmanay on board The Royal Yacht Britannia.​

Burns Night

To celebrate the birth of the Scottish national bard, Robert Burns, we are delighted to offer a fabulous opportunity to dine aboard The Royal Yacht Britannia, combined with accommodation at the 5* Balmoral in Edinburgh.
