Help us to become more sustainable


As a visitor to Brunel’s SS Great Britain, you can help us improve our environmental impact by considering some of these options:

  • Leave the car at home. Try to cycle, walk or use public transport to reach us where possible.
  • Use our free water refill points instead of buying plastic bottles elsewhere.
  • When using facilities, we would be grateful if you would use water wisely and please don’t leave taps running.
  • Use a ‘keep cup’ for your hot drinks. If you forget your cup, we use compostable ‘Vegware’ take away cups and have branded reusable cups for sale.
  • If you have a meal in one of our cafes, try to ‘eat in’ where possible. If you would prefer to take your food away, we have compostable ‘Vegware’ containers and utensils.
  • Take rubbish home. As a charity, we pay for our waste disposal. Any reduction in waste means adirect saving for us, meaning we have more money left for vital conservation work.
