Book Donations

Help to preserve the SS Great Britain’s story with your stories… New for 2023 you can now support us by donating your old books!

How to donate?

Simply pop into our on-site gift shop during opening hours and hand your old books to a member of the team. These books will be sold in the shop with proceeds supporting the ship’s ongoing conservation and our charitable work.

We ask that the donated books are in good condition: a bit of spine creasing is absolutely fine, but no dramatic rips, big stains or missing pages please!  

While you’re dropping off your books why not check out the secondhand books already on sale with donations from staff, volunteers and the public.
