Terrifying Turnip Trail
October 22 2022 - 6 November 2022
Free with admission
This half term, take a trip into the mystifying world of 19th century Halloween.
Follow our Terrifying Turnip Trail at Brunel’s SS Great Britain to experience frolic and fright the Victorian way.
Back in the 19th century, turnips were traditionally used as jack o’ lanterns – ghoulish faces were carved into them to ward off ghostly spectres from the family home. This year, Brunel’s SS Great Britain will be illuminated with a Terrifying Turnip Trail guiding visitors around the ship.
Each turnip along the trail will reveal truths about ‘All hallows eve’ customs.
The trail is included with admission to Brunel’s SS Great Britain over October half term.
