Your day out

Think there isn’t much to see? Let us surprise you. Enjoy a packed day for the whole family at Bristol’s No.1 Attraction.

Immerse yourself amongst the sights, sounds and smells of a Victorian voyage aboard the ship.

Get up close to the awe-inspiring hull in a 360° walk around the SS Great Britain’s original dry dock where she was built and look behind the scenes at a working shipyard.

Uncover the mind behind the ship, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who designed the world’s first great ocean liner. Step into his office, sit in a broad gauge carriage and compare your drawing skills with Brunel’s.
