Docks Heritage Weekend

About

Explore Bristol's maritime past at Docks Heritage Weekend, with events for all ages at Underfall Yard, M Shed and SS Great Britain.

This annual event celebrates the important story of Bristol's historic Docks, which were the centre of the city's trade for centuries. Eclipsed after the 1920s by Avonmouth Docks, the last regular trading ship departed in 1974 and the Docks were closed to commercial shipping in 1975. Since then the Harbour has been regenerated into the leisure, residential and business centre that we see today. This special weekend offers a taster of yesteryear with fun and engaging activities for all the family.

Free of charge 
(charges apply for some activities)
