Step on board Brunel's SS Great Britain after-dark this Halloween and settle in for a good, old-fashioned, Victorian fright-fest.


Follow your ghoulish guide and navigate the darkest nooks and crannies of Brunel's 174-year-old ship; explore the eerie sights, sounds and smells and watch out for characters lurking in the shadows, hoping to share their terrible tales with you.

In association with Bristol Old Vic, The Spooky Ship takes inspiration from the SS Great Britain's history and brings the ship vividly to life as professional actors roam the decks and ghostly figures from the past stalk the corridors, making it a nightmare to remember.

The Dockyard Cafe will be open until 10pm, with food served until 9pm.
