LEGO Britannia


A LEGO replica model of The Queen’s former floating palace, The Royal Yacht Britannia, is now an exciting new permanent feature at Britannia’s Visitor Centre in Ocean Terminal.

Created using 40,000 LEGO bricks, and measuring over 11 feet in length, the magnificent 1:37 scale model was constructed from Britannia’s original plans and drawings. It took 51 year old LEGO model builder and fisherman, Jim McDonough, eight weeks to build the ship, on the dining room table, in his home near Arbroath. No glue was used in its construction, and everything can be taken apart.


Come and view this magnificent creation with its incredible attention to detail across the five decks, from the onboard Phantom V Rolls-Royce in its garage, to the white Baby Grand Piano in Britannia’s Royal Deck Tea Room.
