Brunel's SS Great Britain has been lovingly restored to her former glory, offering only the best in quality, atmosphere and service. The world's first luxury liner is a multi-award-winning venue for non-residential conferences, corporate and private functions, weddings and civil partnerships. Steeped in history, the ship makes a stunning and memorable setting at the heart of Bristol’s harbour. The neighbouring conference space, The Brunel Institute, hosts stunning views onto the historic steamship and offers up-to-date, flexible and modern facilities, with easy access, excellent transport links and good car and coach parking, within an historic dockyard setting. Clients are supported with excellent award-winning event management and customer service, and promotional tools such as high quality images.

Guests benefit from an optional guided tour, and have full freedom to explore the historic site and follow in the footsteps of Victorian passengers – from the first ‘All England Cricket Team’ to tour Australia to novelist Anthony Trollope.
