Step on board the most extraordinary time-machine. Brunel’s ss Great Britain, the world’s first great ocean liner is Bristol’s no.1 attraction and in the top 10 in the UK (TripAdvisor 2014/15).
Brunel’s ss Great Britain has enjoyed over 170 years of adventure, travelled a million miles at sea and been around the world 32 times. It’s been an incredible journey and it’s far from over.
Now one of the UK’s best-loved all-weather attractions, Brunel’s ss Great Britain is a fantastic day out for the whole family. You can explore the decks, dockside or down below the spectacular glass sea. Be transported by sights, sounds and even smells as you investigate life on board. You can even see if you’ve got what it takes to be a Victorian sailor and scale the mainmast with Go Aloft!
There are a wide range of events and activities throughout the year, ranging from special Halloween events and curator-led talks about rare artefacts from the archive. To find out more, visit the Brunel’s ss Great Britain website, social media channels or pick up a leaflet.
Tickets are valid for a whole year. Visit the website for full details.
