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.

Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays only.

    This was a fabulous experience. We especially liked the under water part and the realistic accommodations with the characters portrayed. Just amazing and so well worth the visit. Read full review

    Absolutely brilliant!! It is a testament to the restoration specialists and the other staff who look after this wonderful relic. Such a pity that the ship is slowly rotting away. Keep up the... Read full review
