Visit Brunel’s SS Great Britain, Bristol’s number one Traveller Favourite, as ranked on TripAdvisor (2021). Often referred to as ‘the ship that changed the world’, the SS Great Britain is set in her original 19th century dockyard and is now an award-winning museum and visitor attraction.
Immerse yourself in life at sea during the Victorian era. Hold your breath as you go underwater to take a look up at the ship’s original iron hull and revolutionary screw propeller. Wander through the Great Western Dockyard and come face to face with characters from the Victorian age in the lively dockside. Make your way from the ship’s deck through the luxury of first class, past the roar of the engine and into the cramped and confines of steerage.
Make a day of it with a visit to Being Brunel, stepping into Brunel’s world through an incredible array of interactive displays, games and artefacts from his life.
Tickets can be booked online via the Brunel’s SS Great Britain website. Please check the website for the most up to date opening times and information before planning your visit.
