South Gloucestershire Council Offer

Discover, play, and explore on board Brunel’s SS Great Britain

If you live in South Gloucestershire and your child receives benefits-related free school meals then you’re eligible for one of a limited number of free family tickets to visit Brunel’s SS Great Britain in Bristol.

There’s lots to see and do at Brunel’s SS Great Britain included in your ticket. Explore the historic dockyard and head beneath the glass sea into the dry dock where the ship was built; step back in time in the Dockyard Museum; board the world’s first great ocean liner, alive with sights, sounds and even smells; head behind-the-scenes to see inside a working shipyard; and don’t miss the Being Brunel museum, discovering Brunel’s extraordinary achievements and stepping into his office and family dining room.
