Discover the ship that changed the world.

We are excited to warmly welcome you back to Brunel’s SS Great Britain! We are now open, our opening times are Tuesday - Sunday 10am - 6pm. We are very much looking forward to seeing you for a terrific day out.

You will need to buy your tickets online and book a timed slot for your visit. Plan your visit here.

We have made comprehensive and thorough preparations to enable us to open safely to visitors. Our staff and volunteers will look after you on your visit and ensure that physical distancing and visitor flow is managed carefully.

Our priority is to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable visit. We are carefully managing visitor numbers on site, so that everyone has plenty of space to explore the ship and museums safely. If you are a member, an existing ticket holder, or are buying a ticket online, please book a timed slot for your visit.

Thank you for your patience and support over the last few months. We can’t wait to see you!
