November 12 2022



This event has now passed. Thanks to all who attended.

Organised by the Brunel Institute, Brunel: History, Conservation and Legacy is the first major conference centred around I.K Brunel and his legacy held since 2006.

This event is for transport and maritime historians and enthusiasts, engineers, researchers and anybody interested in architecture, design and the life and work of Brunel. Running from 9:30am to 5:00pm, it will feature contributions from Brunel historians, writers and engineers based around three themes:

  1. New historical perspectives around the life and work of Isambard Kingdom Brunel
  2. The ongoing conservation of Brunel’s architectural and engineering legacy
  3. Transforming Futures: Brunel’s engineering legacy in the 21st century and beyond

The event will be held in the Brunel Institute, a collaboration between the SS Great Britain Trust and the University of Bristol. The Institute houses one of the most important Brunel-related collections in the world.
