Waking in the steps of Royalty! 5 out of 5 stars

Visited with a friend. Wow what a pleasure. This is a self guided audio tour which is extremely user friendly. Amazing access to most areas and a fabulous tea room on route. Plenty of photo opportunities with dressing up costumes at some points. Lots of children on board too having fun running around the decks, much like the once young royals did!
