Brunel's SS Great Britain Bristol - Go aloft

About

Step into the shoes of a Victorian sailor and climb the huge mainmast of the SS Great Britain. You’ll be securely strapped into a harness and briefed, before heading up the rigging to a viewing platform 26m above the ground. From here, you can admire the beautiful vista over the floating harbour, or you can decide to step out onto the main yard, 9m across the ship below, if you are brave enough! Tickets cost £10 and you will be able to buy them on the day of your visit on the Weather Deck.

    We would have liked to have spent an hour or two here but the entrance fee is £18! Not consoled by the fact that the ticket was for the full year - we were only in town for two days. So we didn't... Read full review
