Brunel's SS Great Britain

About

One of the most important historic ships in the world, Brunel's SS Great Britain is bursting with family-fun activities. Discover the greatest innovation of the Victorian age and explore the ship that changes the way we travel today.

Go below deck. Meet Victorian characters. Grip the rope as you climb the rigging. See the engine come to life. Smell the food in the kitchens. Hear stories from the past and step inside the brilliant mind of Brunel.

There are a wide range of activities throughout the year, from a special Halloween evening to curator-led talks plus a Dickensian, Christmas Weekend and a Victorian circus extravaganza.

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
