In the days leading up to Mother’s Day, Brits across the country flock to the nearest card shops and supermarkets, in search of the perfect bouquet and an accompanying box of luxurious chocolates. Flowers and chocolates are great, don’t get me wrong, but isn’t it all just a little cliché? Why not give her a Mother’s Day to remember…?
And where better than a luxurious day spent aboard a piece of authentic British iconic history, The Royal Yacht Britannia?
There’s truly nowhere more prestigious to spend Sunday the 26th March than the place where Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II cited as being “the one place I can truly relax.”
Mothers are invited to explore the breath-taking State Apartments, which includes Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s favourite room, the Sun Lounge. Take in all the stunning sights of the State Dining Room, where the Queen would frequently entertain the most famous names in the world, from A-list film stars to foreign Kings & Queens – the seats have been graced with the charismatic presence of figures such as Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela and Frank Sinatra, to name a few. Why not treat your mother to a sophisticated cream tea? There’s truly nothing more tasteful or British while enjoying the picturesque views offered by the Firth of Forth from The Royal Deck Tea Room. Relax and enjoy a glass of chilled Veuve Cliquot Rosé, accompanied by homemade scones with jam and clotted cream (a true British delight!) or a slice of delicious, freshly baked cake, all the while being serenaded by the classical sounds of The Royal Yacht Britannia’s resident pianist.
But the occasion doesn’t end there – visit The Royal Yacht Britannia’s gift shop to take home a souvenir from your day to last a lifetime? Choose from beautiful, aromatic Isle of Bute candles, a fine bone china lovingly entitled “Her Ladyship”, a William Morris beauty products collection and many more. Alternatively, gift vouchers are available both online and at the gift shop, which are presented in a prestigious Royal Yacht Britannia wallet, which can be used for admission onboard Britannia. They’re also able to be used in the Royal Deck Tea Room, onboard NAAFI (Britannia’s sweet shop) and in the gift shop itself. So what are you waiting for? Give mothers everywhere an unforgettable experience aboard Her Majesty The Queen’s former floating palace this Mother’s Day.
For those of you looking for a once in a lifetime experience, Britannia is also a 5 star evening events venue available for exclusive use hire for private dinners and drinks receptions in the State Apartments. It would make for a the dream location to celebrate your mother’s special milestone birthday or anniversary whilst being treated like royalty aboard one of the most luxurious venues in the world.
